Publisher's Summary

Since she can remember, Katarina's relatives have been grooming her for the family business - thieving. But when Kat tries to go straight and leave the "Life" for a normal life, she's promptly kicked out of her new school for stealing the headmaster's car and mounting it on the school fountain. Although she could have done it without breaking a sweat, ironically, this time, she's innocent.

In fact, she was framed - by another highly skilled thief. Her friend and brother-in-trade Hale, with his mischievous smile and limitless bank account, has appeared out of nowhere to bring her back to the Life, back to the family Kat tried so hard to escape.

Hale has a good reason: A powerful mobster has just been robbed of his priceless art collection, and he wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have cracked this vault, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he IS the list.

Now, caught between Interpol and a far more deadly predator, Kat's dad needs her help. For Kat, a consummate thief in her own right, the solution is simple: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and maybe just enough misguided pride to pull off the biggest heist in history - or at least in her family's (very crooked) history.

Fun listen!!!

Needing a break from "serious" books, I chose The Heist.

What a fun listen!!! Angela Dawe seamlessly changes her voice for each character regardless of gender and age. Each character is recognizable, even Halle and Nick.

The story is fun, interesting and believable. The length is perfect.

Saving to my re-listen list for my next needed break!

A Pleasant Surprise

This was deeper than I expected it to be. It's definitely YA but it still has a good message about war crimes. I'm looking forward to reading another one.

Good book, between books

I enjoyed other books by Ally Carter. This one didn't have as much mystery or fun to it. The performance was decent, but sometimes I had a hard time focusing on the narrator's soft voice. It was a decent listen, but I wasn't "wowed".

Sad this book is over.

The beginning was a little slow. But I enjoyed the book very much. Great book.

Masterful narrator; regrettable story

This is an unlikely story with cliche characters, cheesy fictional elements, an unrealistic plot, and a predictable ending. But what more can we expect from YA literature? I only finished the story so I could spend more time with the narrator, whose grasp of voices and accents was masterful.

This novel is a very interesting look at a world of thieves, rather than the exploits of their captors.
Thanks for beginning a series of such fun.

This book was so good and ends up with big twists at the end that i didn't even see coming.
