Thought this might be amusing to share, while it lasted:

https://www.amazon.com/Thief-Megan-Whalen-Turner/dp/B008YF1840/ref=sr_1_12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1486935874&sr=1-12&keywords=turner+megan+whalen

There's a normal Amazon.com page/listing for Megan's The Thief, but the above link goes to a page where Megan is mis-attributed as the author of a book of the same name, from a different series.  Scroll through the reviews.  Some are for the Cussler book, as pictured, and some are for Megan's book, as listed.

That’s actually really funny! They came out in a similar time period as well.

However, a quick glance at some of those reviews has me seething.

Dry? What!?!!???

No foreshadowing? #&%$@! There is foreshadowing ON THE FIRST BLOOMING PAGE and EVERY FEW PAGES after that!

Not original!!!!!!!!!

*mutters angrily in a corner

But the real question is... If you order from this page, which book do you get?

It's like Russian roulette, except nobody dies and everyone gets a book (but maybe not the one they wanted).

Hi Anon! *waves*

What's so funny about this is that some of the reviews (good or bad) could be for either book, there's no way to tell. Do you suppose it's Amazon's mistake, or the the people writing the reviews?

Makes me think of this book, posted on eBay, which is attributed to Megan when I don't think it was written by her. I could be wrong, maybe she's been knitting this book instead of a QT one.
