Ally Carter (www.allycarter.com) is the New York Times best-selling author of the five books in the Gallagher Girls series: I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill YouCross My Heart and Hope to SpyDon't Judge a Girl by her CoverOnly the Good Spy Young and Out of Sight, Out of Time as well as Heist Societyand its sequel Uncommon Criminals. Ally lives in Oklahoma where she is hard at work on her next novel.
The stakes are not only higher but personal in this third Heist Society novel. Teen criminal mastermind Katarina Bishop gathers her fellow con artists to help one of their own, W. W. Hale the Fifth, when Hale's wealthy tycoon grandmother dies suddenly-and mysteriously-leaving control of her billion-dollar corporation to underage Hale and the family's greedy trustee lawyer. This time Kat's not after cursed jewels or stolen paintings but the original will-even if it means losing Hale in the process. While jet-setting around the globe, scheming elaborate break-ins, and even pulling off a "Basil E. Frankweiler" maneuver in a high-security London museum, Kat must keep her feelings for Hale in check. Can she trust her usually steadfast partner? Further complicating this cinematic caper is the meeting of Kat's under-the-radar relatives and Hale's socialite family. With razor-sharp dialogue, twists and tight squeezes galore, and one quick-thinking heroine, Carter doesn't miss a step as she continues to entertain her numerous fans.- Angela Leeper Booklist Online"
