About The Thief Taker's Apprentice:
When Berren makes the mistake of stealing a purse from a thief-taker, it should have condemned him to a short and brutal life in the slave-mines. So when the thief-taker offers to train him as an apprentice instead, he can’t believe his luck. But Berren’s new master has secrets of his own, and thief-takers and their apprentices are wont to make enemies far more readily than friends.Source: Info in the About The Thief Taker's Apprentice was taken from the author's website at http://www.stephendeas.com/the-thief-takers-apprentice-unpublished/ on 03/10/10.
