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 simply… 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, 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.
** spoiler alert ** I loved this book more then the first. I loved story and also the dynamics between the character. It was also such a different type of story then book one. I am growing to love Kat character. Her crew is just the best group of people. I can not express my love for simon. I loved nick role in this book it was a nice surprise. It was such a fast pace novel and i really must read the next one soon. It will be so fun to see what side of the line Kat and her crew will be on next book. I just enjoyed the heist alot and also the internal struggle the Kat handled in this book. I crew to love Kat and her relationship with her boy. It was a fun, fast pace read and step up from book one.
