"House of Thieves" is based on the just-released mystery novel by Charles Belfoure. House of Thieves is set in 1886 New York. A respectable architect shouldn't have any connection to the notorious gang of thieves and killers that rules the underbelly of the city. But when John Cross' son racks up an unfathomable gambling debt to Kent's Gents, Cross must pay it back himself. All he has to do is use his inside knowledge of high society mansions and museums to craft a robbery even the smartest detectives won't solve. Soon Cross becomes invaluable to the gang and with that his entire life becomes a balancing act, and it will only take one mistake for it all to come crashing down — and for his family to go down too.

House of Thieves - Synopsis - Netflix
The book begins with the first meeting of Locke and Sabetha, the woman that he has been in love with throughout the series but has not been introduced until this book. Sabetha and Locke meet when they are still part of the child thief gang and she is charged with guiding him. After this flashback, the scene shifts to the fallout from Red Seas Under Red Skies where Locke is dying and Jean is charged with helping him. Patience, of the Bondsmagi appears and offers the pair a deal. They can work with her faction of the Bondsmagi in order to rig elections in exchange for money and Locke's life. The catch is the fact that Sabetha is working for the other side. From this point, the book switches between flashbacks concerning Locke and Sabetha learning from Father Chains and the present games between Sabetha and Locke.
