House of Thieves (Large Print / Hardcover)
September 2015 Indie Next List
“The Cross family has it all. Born into the wealthy class in the 1880s and related to the Astors of New York City, their lives are envied. John, the patriarch, is a highly regarded architect; his wife, Helen, a beauty; and his children, George, Julia, and Charlie, each accomplished. But all is not as it seems. George has a gambling problem, and his inability to control himself causes criminals to threaten his family for repayment. Belfoure weaves a fascinating story that reveals the descent of this family into the underworld of crime. The endeavor to save George and the drama that ensues not only captivates the Cross family, but the reader as well. A great read!”

Using his inside knowledge of mansions and museums, he crafts the perfect robbery. But his newfound talent becomes invaluable to the gang.
