Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life: Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she's simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That's why Kat isn't surprised when she's asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn't been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long-and in Kat's world, history almost always repeats itself. But it's the third problem that makes Kat's crew the most nervous, and that is . . . the emerald is cursed. Kat might be in way over her head, but she's not going down without a fight. After all, she has her best friend- the gorgeous Hale-and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses and realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time. Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules. Critics and fans alike have fallen for theHeist Societyseries (no conning necessary). With more mystery, non-stop action, romance and humor, this second novel is just as irresistible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Breathtaking Masterpiece When readers last saw Katarina Bishop, she was busily plotting the ultimate heist of her (albeit short) career. Now, Kat's con artist skills are called into play again, this time in a work of thievery that takes readers to the frigid Alps and the lavish ballrooms of Morocco. in her classic, timeless style, Carter will leave her readers guessing until the very end, when all at once she reveals the truth and takes your breath away in one fell swoop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uncommon Criminals I think this is my favourite Heist Society novel! The plot was so cleverly devised (the heist especially) and the characters were so fun to follow through this new adventure. Such a wonderful read!
