Kat Bishop: friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. Or simply, the girl who robbed the greatest museum in the world...Now she's been asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. Trouble is, not only is the gem elusive - it's cursed. Kat might be in way over her head but help is at hand. She enlists the gorgeous Hale and the rest of the crew from Heist Society on a heart-stopping round-the-world search. But this time, Kat - who knows every trick and con in the book - is making up her own rules.
(HEIST SOCIETY) is a thoroughly enjoyable, cinema-ready adventure, and the details of thieving tools and techniques, lavish settings, and cast of eccentric characters, including possible spies and love interests, all add texture and depth to the action. [Booklist, US]
