Since she can remember, Katarina’s relatives have been grooming her for the family business–thieving. But when Kat tries to go straight and leave the Life for a normal life, she’s promptly kicked out of her new school fornbsp;stealing the headmaster’s car andnbsp;mounting it onnbsp;the schoolnbsp;fountain. Although she could have done it without breaking a sweat, ironically, this time, she’s innocent. nbsp; In fact she was framed–by anothernbsp;highly-skilled thief. Her friend andnbsp;brother-in-tradenbsp;Hale,nbsp;with his mischievous smile and limitless bank account, hasnbsp;appeared out of nowhere to bringnbsp;her back to the Life, back to the family Kat tried so hard to escape. Hale has a good reason: Anbsp;powerful mobster has just been robbed of his priceless artnbsp;collection and he wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could havenbsp;cracked this vault, and Kat'snbsp;father isn’t just on the suspect list, he IS the list. Now, caught between Interpol and a far morenbsp;deadly predator,nbsp;Kat’s dad needs hernbsp;help.nbsp; nbsp; For Kat,nbsp;a consummate thief in her own right,nbsp;nbsp;the solution is simple:nbsp;track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it’s a spectacularly impossible job? She’s got two weeks, a teenage crew, and maybe just enough misguided pride to pull off the biggest heist in history–or at least in her family’s (very crooked) history.
