A ugust, 1944, Prague is where the story begins with a seemingly casual exchange of information. But in wartime, is any act, any one thing, trivial? Decades later, in contemporary Chicago, the consequences emerge through the medium of television. Documentary filmmaker Ellie Foreman gets a letter prompted by the success of her show “Celebrate Chicago.” One viewer was the elderly Ben Sinclair. When he suddenly dies, his landlady Mrs. Fleischman finds Ellie’s name among his effects and writes to her. Ellie, who hasn’t a clue about a connection to Ben, is curious. And she agrees to help dispose of Ben Sinclair’s possessions. She became a filmmaker to help people tell their stories. The books and wartime relics Ben left behind–will they be enough to tell his?
All too soon, Mrs. Fleischman dies. Then Ben’s things are stolen from Ellie’s suburban home. The single mom, working to move past her ex, doesn’t know what to think. But she has to scramble for work and is soon embroiled in producing a campaign video for a steel magnate running for a Republican seat in the Illinois Senate. Despite these distractions, Ellie stays focused on her odd link to the dead man and turns to her father, a retired lawyer with deep roots in Chicago’s Jewish community, for insights into the mystery of Ben Sinclair. In time, a terrifying scenario develops that reaches back into several pasts.

Nothing like a murder to get the blood flowing
When James Blake discovers his wife has been murdered in their London home, he is determined to find her killer. Julia, a conservator – a protector and preserver of fine art – has left him with just two clues: the words help me on her mobile phone and a strange attachment of Michelangelo’s Leda and the Swan.
As the prime suspect of his wife’s murder, James flees England and sets out on a trail of deception and danger across the sweeping landscapes of Venice and Florence into a dark underworld of corruption, a trail that will lead him to the killer – and the shocking truth behind the mystery.
Please note! Regret No More, the second in the James Blake thriller series, is out now and is available at the special launch price of $2.99 / £1.99.
From the reviews of Take No More:
‘Memorable characters with murder, organised crime, Italy and art….’
‘Kirby has an intimate knowledge of Florence, Venice and all things Italian…. ‘
‘There is much to admire about Seb Kirby’s knowledge of the art world and there’s plotting and deceit in the criminal underworld to contend with too.’
‘The writing gives you the feel of actually being in Italy – you can taste it and smell it..’
‘Set mostly in Florence, you will wander the streets with James as he tries to track down the murderer of his wife.’
‘Intricate, rich in setting and details….’
‘London and Florence were handled very well to add richness to the novel, alongside the author’s obvious love and knowledge of the art world’
‘Set in Florence, Venice and London, not only is it an artful murder mystery but a lot of the subject matter concerning the old classics and their history is based on fact.’
‘I was attracted by the fragile serenity of the image on the front cover.’
‘I enjoyed the setting in Italy and I liked the way the murder mystery linked around the main topic.’
‘I really liked the main character, James Blake and his fearless pursuit of the truth.’
‘I loved the inclusion of a more modern evil …. along with the search for lost classic art and the romantic tale of James Blake, who loved his wife very much…’
‘Take great art of the Italian Renaissence, throw in a 21st century crime family reminiscent of the Borgias, a trace of darkness, a lot of murder and you have a good read for a rainy day….’
‘Mystery and the arts – a great combo. The art world depiction was fascinating…. Made me want to visit the Louvre again.’

L ydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country’s mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir. Duty comes before personal choice for a princess especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years. Lydia’s pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession placing her yet unborn infant at the head of the both queues. No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.
Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out. At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow. She’s not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father’s chamber. The Father ends up in flames forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives.
Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but then tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him. It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila’s son.
