Reviews

(HEIST SOCIETY) is a thoroughly enjoyable, cinema-ready adventure, and the details of thieving tools and techniques, lavish settings, and cast of eccentric characters, including possible spies and love interests, all add texture and depth to the action. - Booklist, US

Gr 6-10-Kat, 16, is one of the top international art thieves for hire. Her parents were thieves and apples don't fall far from trees. She learned well from them and is now pitching in on a heist of the famous Cleopatra Emerald with her friend and crush, Hale. Kat and her friends are jetsetters and move in a society far removed from the average teen. Listeners can live vicariously as Kat and Hale sun themselves on a yacht or play roulette in Monaco. Money is no object and the heist itself is all they care about. Kat has become involved in a plot to steal the emerald because she was tricked into believing that it was going to be given to its rightful owner. When she discovers the truth, Kat is determined to get it back from the woman who tricked her into stealing it in the first place. There is one complicating factor-the emerald is cursed. Angela Dawe narrates Ally Carter's novel (Hyperion, 2011) in a clear and straightforward performance, capturing the voices of the teens well. Different pronunciations of Uruguay are bothersome as is the whiny voice of fellow thief, Simon. The print versions of "Heist Society" novels are popular, so this audiobook should also fly off the shelves.-Joan Kindig, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA (c) Copyright 2011.
