When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her
on a tripto the Louvre...to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria...to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own--scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.
Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful
mobsterhas been robbed of his priceless art collectionand wants to retrieve it.Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat'sfather isn'tjust on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat'sdad needs her help.
For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if
it'sa spectacularly impossible job? She'sgot two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in history-or at leasther family's(very crooked) history.
