Reviews

"Payne's personal charm is clearly evident on every page. Engaging reading about an elegant modern-day Robin Hood."--Kirkus Reviews
"This astonishing memoir by a daring and prolific African American jewel thief reads like a thrilling caper novel, even as it reveals hard truths. . . . At the core of this incredible tale, a sassy catch me-if-you-can told from a Black female's perspective, is a defiant and relentless woman who will do anything to go against what is dictated by her skin color and socioeconomic status."--Booklist (starred review)
"Payne's storytelling voice is easy and intimate. . . .You want to cheer for Payne. . . . She's stolen yet another thing. Your heart."--New York Times
"Payne's story has made her life irresistible."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
