Some stories are all about the crime. These linked stories are about the maelstrom of what happens afterward. A hard-bitten crew of professional thieves pull off the score of their lives, coming away with seven million in cash. Like any heist there are some unforeseen complications — they don’t get away without a few bodies dropping. Still they have the swag. Enough to change their lives, make new identities, start fresh. But that’s when the real trouble begins…

Culprits has been optioned for television by Character 7 (The Night Manager) productions.

“CULPRITS has a consistently strong lineup of writers and a great hook! Brewer and Phillips have done a fantastic job putting together this multi-layered story and I couldn’t read it fast enough!”
―Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-Winning Author of EXIT STRATEGY
