“At times Stealing the Scream is laugh-out-loud funny, but it is always filled with enough mystery to encourage the reader to keep turning the page. This one was a scream to read.” 

 New York Journal of Books.

‘Theodore Carter’s ingenious reinvention of the actual theft of Edvard Munch’s The Scream is a compelling and provocative exploration of the seductive power of art, the arrogance of wealth, the danger of misplaced loyalty, and the relationships between a work of art and its audience.”

 Eric Kraft, author of Reservations Recommended

“Carter is a witty, savvy writer and he keeps this tale humming right up until its brilliant denouement.”

 Corey Mesler, author Memphis Movie and Camel’s Bastard Son

“A stylish, speculative heist thriller riffing off an infamous true caper and steeped in creative craftsmanship, Stealing the Scream is the literary equivalent of a crisp, dry Martini garnished with not one but several tantalizing twists. The result is an intoxicating recipe whose standard genre ingredients—mystery, romance, history, suspense, drama, humor—are uniquely blended into a concoction that is both potent and poetic.”

 Will Viharo, author of The Thrillville Pulp Fiction Collection and the Vic Valentine, Private Eye series

“Theodore Carter’s crime novel, Stealing the Scream, creates a what-if scenario that outshines all others . . . an intense mystery with multiple plot tangents and varying scenarios.”

 Emily Jane Hills Orford, Readers’ Favorite

“This is an amazing tale of a most complicated man and his strange journey in the world of art. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to read something different, captivating, amusing and well-worth the time spent.”

 Marilyn Meredith, author of the Deputy Temple Crabtree mystery series

“Stealing the Scream goes beyond the whodunit to the howdunnit, and then further still: a proper whydunnit.  The motives, in the end, are fascinating.  Here are people who don’t like themselves enough, people who feel they haven’t realized their own potential.  People who haven’t yet painted their masterpieces.  Carter commits them all to canvas in a vivid, entertaining swirl of comedy and tragedy.”

 Ben Rogers, author of The Flamer

“It’s about talent and ambition and self-sabotage. It’s about international crime connections and capers so crazy they just might almost work. Read it yourself. I bet you a box of frozen burritos you’ll be convinced—or at least thoroughly entertained.”

 Neil Ellis Orts, author of Cary and John
