This is heisting at its best, and most elegant! Kat Bishop gets booted out of Colgan Academy, an exclusive private school, just in time to save her father from the hands of the evil mobster Arturo Taccone, who believes Kat's father has stolen five priceless paintings from him. Enter W.W. Hale the Fifth, Uncle Eddie, the beautiful Gabrielle, Simon, Angus, Hamish, and the new guy Nick. This den--more like a family gathering--of thieves finds a way to break into the most prestigious museum in London to set things right. This is just a blast of a book from beginning to end. Light but just right. - KF

So much for escaping the wonderful world of theft. Can a crew of teenagers pull of the heist of the century? Only one other thief has ever gotten into The Henley and he didn't take anything out. Can they get four paintings out in time to save Kat's father from an evil worse than anything they've ever encountered? Even Uncle Eddie won't take on Taccone and he isn't afraid of anyone. But Kat must. Taccone believes her father has stolen something from him and will kill her father if they aren't returned.

Join Kat and her crew on this wonderful adventure story. I was amazed at the tricks up their sleeves. - BF
