An Empire of Silence: A Story About a Crime

ABOUT Anthony Chapman

Anthony Chapman
Anthony Chapman was born in Ireland in 1969. Amongst other jobs, he has worked as a kitchen porter, a janitor, a tour guide, as a general labourer in construction, and as an actor. His only claim to fame is that he was a stand-in for Eric Idle on the movie Ella Enchanted. 


When Jack Higgins, the Da Vinci of Burglars, learns that he has been hired to steal the Whitely Diamond, it's like a promise has been fulfilled. When he then discovers that the most celebrated jewel in American history is a fake, Jack is thrown into a world where no-one is who they seem, and where everyone is expendable in the pursuit of an empire.
