Kat Bishop isn't really a thief, although it certainly looks like that after her debut in Heist Society. This story resumes the tale of Kat and Hale with even more action and adventure. The triangle between her, Nick and Hale works so effortlessly that the sparks created really move everything in the plot forward and is not forced at all. Nick is a good boy overall, but he has a bad streak. Hale is ever charming and you know he just can't be right for Kat, but she still has a thing for him or was that Nick? Yes, dilemmas, although I think Nick and Hale care more for her than she does for them.So Kat has decided to redeem herself by using her time on the road to return the Cleopatra Emerald to it's rightful owner. There is a curse on the emerald and everything Kat has ever done or conned in the past just won't work this time. She has to rethink her plans to make it work and boy, does this twisty plot work. The conclusion is well worth the price of the book! This book is for anyone who enjoys a light mystery and is appropriate for those over 11 years old. I just thought this is wonderful!
