Heist Society by Aly Carter

Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)Heist Society by Ally Carter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I feel as though I am giving every book 5 stars, but they really deserve it. I have been reading some great books lately. This one in particular was really fun to read. I'm reminded of the television series I used to watch with my Dad, "To Catch A Thief". It was a combination of that and "Mission Impossible". This group of young thieves put their heads together to re-steal (apparently not really stealing) some masterpieces to rescue Kat's father all the while dodging a notorious crime boss. The story moved all around Europe which kept it very interesting and the relationships between the characters were obvious but not overdone -- a thieving family who stuck together. Their solution to cracking the security of a very secure museum was very clever and when I finished the book, I wanted to read another one right away. I have to wait until June though. Oh well, my bookshelves are very full so I'll have plenty to read until then.

  1. To Catch a Thief and Mission Impossible? I gotta read this one ...

    Great thoughts! Thanks.

  2. I loved the concept of this one. I want to go back and re-read it since I don't think I appreciated it enough when I first read it. It was so complex that it got on my nerves. It'd be better on re-read.
