Stealing the Marbles [electronic resource]

Knapp, E. J.2010
At the turn of the 19th century, Lord Elgin stole pieces of the Parthenon and shipped them to England. At the turn of the 21st century, Danny Samsel is going to steal them back. When does a wrong become right? Danny Samsel is a Master Thief. He has defeated the finest security systems in the world: Interpol wants him, the FBI wants him, the CIA wants him. After a year languishing on Kefalonia, he has turned his attention to the heist of the century. He has decided to steal the Parthenon Marbles from the British Museum and return them to Greece. His motives are not entirely altruistic: estranged from the beautiful Kastania, he wants her back in his life. And, he needs her help to steal the Marbles from the British Museum. With help from old friends worldwide, plus a few surprising ones, Danny pursues his goal, despite vicious interventions from Interpol and avaricious underworld art collectors. At great cost to him and his accomplices, Danny settles a few scores, foxes old foes, and guarantees the future of his chosen career.

E. J. Knapp was born during a thunderstorm in Detroit, Michigan, several years before the Motor City discovered fins. Raised in a working-class, blue-collar neighbourhood, he morphed into the stereotypical hoodlum a teenager growing up on the west side of Detroit was expected to be. Dropping out of high school at sixteen, he hit the road in his 1960 Chevy and has, in one way or another, been rolling down that road ever since. He has published numerous short stories in various on-line magazines, most of which are no longer in existence. He insists this is not his fault. He is also the author of the short story collection Thief and Other Love Stories and a non-fiction work, Secrets of the Great Golden Gate Bridge. He and his numerous critters are back on the west side of Detroit, a mere 8 blocks from where he grew up. He spends his time writing and fixing up an old house he bought for a ridiculously small amount of cash.
