About the Author

Kurt Dinan is a high school English teacher. He's had several short stories published, including one in 2010's The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with his wife, three young sons, and baby girl. Don't Get Caught is his first novel.

"Genre-savvy, clever, and full of "Heist Rules" like "If questioned, be evasive" and "Play to your crew's strengths," this twisty tale is funny, fast-paced, and full of surprises. Newcomer Dinan brings in numerous classic heist elements, including sleight-of-hand, code names, flashback sequences (to show what really happened along the way), and elaborate schemes, leading to one revelation after another. Fans of Ocean's 11 or Leverage--properties Max himself holds dear in his personal playbook--will find a great deal to enjoy in Dinan's debut." -- Publishers Weekly

"Funny, clever, and playful, this debut is an enjoyable romp that pairs high-stakes cons with a ragtag gang of highschool misfits." -- Booklist
"An engaging and fun read. " -- SLJ Teen
