Heist Society

Heist Society
Ally Carter
2010

"Either we're a team or we aren't.
Either you trust me or you don't."
Hale took a step toward her.
"What's it going to be, Kat?"

It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth; in a moment, Kat didn't have a clue what to say. I can't do this without you sounded trite. What they were doing was too big for a simple Please.
"Hale, I--"
"You know what? Never mind. Either way, I'm in, Kat." He seemed utterly resolved as he slipped on his sunglasses. "I'm all in."

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to 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. Bu he has good reason: a powerful mobster's priceless art collection has been stolen and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled off this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help.
For Kat there is only one solution: 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, hopefully, just enough talent to pull of the biggest heist in her family's (very crooked) history--and with any luck, steal her life back along the way.
