The Crypt Thief

A Hugo Marston Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


It’s summer in Paris and two tourists have been murdered in Père Lachaise cemetery in front of Jim Morrison’s grave. The cemetery is locked down and put under surveillance, but the killer returns, flitting in and out like a ghost, and breaks into the crypt of a long-dead Moulin Rouge dancer. In a bizarre twist, he disappears under the cover of night with part of her skeleton.

One of the dead tourists is an American and the other is a woman linked to a suspected terrorist; so the US ambassador sends his best man and the embassy’s head of security—Hugo Marston—to help the French police with their investigation.

When the thief breaks into another crypt at a different cemetery, stealing bones from a second famed dancer, Hugo is stumped. How does this killer operate unseen? And why is he stealing the bones of once-famous can-can girls?

Hugo cracks the secrets of the graveyards but soon realizes that old bones aren’t all this killer wants. . . .

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 11, 2013 – Two young lovers make the fatal mistake of sneaking into Paris s P re Lachaise Cemetery the same night as a bone-stealing psychopath, in Pryor s propulsive second novel starring affable former FBI profiler Hugo Marston (after 2012 s The Bookseller). Because one victim is a U.S. senator s son, the potentially explosive case lands in the laps of Hugo, now the U.S. embassy s security chief, and his friend Tom Green, a semiretired CIA spook, at a time when their relationship is strained by Tom s alcoholism. And if they have any hope of stopping and surviving the stone-cold killer dubbed the Scarab by Hugo, because of the glass beetle charms he leaves at each ransacked grave, they will both need to be at the top of their game. The engaging characters sweep readers into a suspenseful chase from Pigalle to the Pyren es, marred only by the Scarab s overkill as he pursues his Grand Guignol fantasy of revenge, death, and reincarnation.
