Publisher's Summary

Five criminals. Two forgeries. And one masterpiece of a heist.

Violet Winters - a professional thief born of a good, honest thief-and-con-artist stock - has been offered the heist of a lifetime. Steal a priceless Salvador Dali from the security-obsessed chairman of the Kilchester Bank and replace it with a forgery.

The fact that the "painting" is a signed, blank canvas doesn't matter. It's the challenge that gives Violet that familiar, addicting rush of adrenaline. Her quarry rests in a converted underground Cold War bunker. One way in, one way out. No margin for error.

But the reason Violet fled Kilchester is waiting right where she left him - an ex-lover with a murderous method for dumping a girlfriend. If her heist is to be a success, there will have to be a reckoning, or everything could go spinning out of control.

Her team of talented misfits assembled, Violet sets out to re-stake her claim on her reputation, exorcise some demons, and claim the prize. That is, if her masterpiece of a plan isn't derailed by a pissed-off crime boss - or betrayal from within her own ranks.

A fun heist story.

I really enjoyed the narrator, and the story was fun all the way through. It was a little hard to keep all of characters straight at times, and the timeline was a bit confusing.

Overall still a really fun book.

Interesting short read.

This was an good short read about an art heist. Violet is hired to steal an interesting Dali art piece. She gets a crew together, but her past comes back and causes some problems. She must figure out how to deal with, get revenge and steal the piece. The characters were likeable and the story progresses well. I didnt care for the narration that much. Her voice sounded a little raspy at times and was a little low. I had to turn the volume higher than normal to listen to it without missing anything.

A lot like Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Really loved twists and turns in the story and the Narration was similar to Crackanory.
