Y/A CORNER: UNCOMMON CRIMINALS!

Y/A CORNER: UNCOMMON CRIMINALS!

ALLY CARTER

LAST YEAR, I HAD A BLAST READING ALLY CARTER’S FIRST CAPER NOVEL, HEIST SOCIETY, A Y/A VERSION OF IT TAKES A THIEF CROSSED WITH CHARADE AND TOPKAPI . . . GREAT STUFF (AND A BIG STEP UP FROM HER GALLAGHER GIRLS SERIES) . . . SO, I’LL BE DOWNLOADING THIS TO MY KINDLE AS SOON AS IT’S AVAILABLE . . .

Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.

There are only three problems. First, the gem is owned by the most secure auction house in the world. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply . . . the emerald is cursed.

Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all she has her best friend — the gorgeous Hale — and the rest of her intrepid crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the world, realizing the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules.

Critics and fans alike have fallen for Heist Society (no conning necessary). With more mystery, non-stop action, romance and humor, this second novel in the hit series is just as irresistible.
