"You might want to remember who I am before you try to con me." ~Katarina Bishop
“If you die of pneumonia,I'm pretty sure there are at least a dozen guys who'll try to kill me and make it look like an accident."
“Either we're a team or we aren't. Either you trust me or you don't." Hale took a step toward her. "What's it going to be, Kat?"
“Can I see you outside for a second?" Kat glared at Hale, then walked to the patio doors and out onto the veranda.
As Hale closed the door behind him, Kat heard Angus say, "Ooh, Mom and Dad are going to fight now.”
“Dancing. Come on. You can do it. It's a lot like navigating through a laser grid. It requires rhythm.' He moved her hips to the beat of the distant music. 'And patience.' He spun her around slowly and back toward him. 'And it's only fun if you trust your partner.' The dip was so slow, so smooth that Kat didn't know it was happening until the world was already turned upside down and Hale's face was inches from her own.
Count me in, Kat.' He squeezed her tighter. 'You should always count me in.”
“It is an occupational hazard that anyone who has spent her life learning how to lie eventually becomes bad at telling the truth.”
since the 2 years that kat bishop knew him she had not figured out w.w. Hale the fifths first name.
SummaryAdd a Summary
You can take the girl out of the thieving life, but can you really take the thief out of the girl? Katarina Bishop has been framed. Wrongfully accused of ‘Porsche-gate’ (a dreadful incident where the headmistresses car somehow ended up on top of the fountain) she’s been turned out of the exclusive private school she conned her way in to. Kat finds it impossible to escape her past when Hale, her former (ridiculously wealthy) partner-in-crime who she just might be in love with, let’s her know that he framed her and why. Kat's father is the sole suspect in the theft of five priceless paintings from the collection of the very dangerous Arturo Taccone, a man who doesn't care that her father isn't guilty; he just wants his paintings back at any cost. Kat has two weeks to track down the paintings, steal them back and save her father’s life. With a crew of masterful teenage con artists, a target of one of the most secure buildings in the world, and the FBI watching her every move the question is - does Kat have what it takes to pull off the most spectacularly impossible job ever?
