These books are awesome.

You open it, start reading, and bam... You're 100 pages in.

The story just pulls you along. It keeps you engaged and honestly, it's just fun to read.

I wish we would have found out why they called Hale "scooter" and I also wish (from the second one) we found out why Hale didn't kiss her back. But those are just things my inquisitive mind longs for.

The books and worth it! The cons and such they pull are very thought out and make you go "dang man, that's cool."

Hamish and Angus absolutely round out the entire team and I'm always excited they're around! One day she might find a good place for Nick though....

I can't wait for the next one.

Kat’s best friend’s, Hale’s, grandmother dies, and he unexpectedly inherits his family’s company. When someone tells Kat that his grandmother’s will may have been changed, she doesn’t want to upset Hale, so she investigates without his knowledge. This was an exciting novel that is the perfect end to the trilogy.

This is yet another of Ally's great books! I loved seeing Kat's family working with her, and did not expect the ending. I would totally recommend it.

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives. Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is a member of one of the most seemingly perfect family in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it's that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting, or stealing, whatever they want. No matter the risk, the Bishops always keep their word, but in Hale's family or close friends, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother's billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there's no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat keeps trying to get him back, especially after she gets informed that his grandmother's will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company's fortune. Kat comes up with a plan that only the she, her friends and family would dare attempt. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because it was so good I could not put it down.

Hmmm... what's the word I'm looking for? Oh, right.


This is my favorite book of the Heist Society series. It's got the action, it's got the romance, it's got the suspense and confusing plot twists that have you saying "OMG, I NEVER SAW IT COMING!" by the end, but most of all, it has Kat's family.

I absolutely love her family, and we got to meet so many of them in this book! It was amazing to see them come together to help Hale, and ultimately, Kat. If this is the last book of this series, I shall weep until I die of dehydration.

No joke!

tHE SUSPENSE. ;A;A; i just had to read this, HALE.

this was my favorite Ally Carter book and I've read all of her books. I hope she makes more for this series.

This book really impressed me. Most of the time I find myself disappointed with sequels and series to this type of book but Ally Carter pulled it off! By focusing the story on Hale the Fifth and his family it shook up the usual plot line and amused readers!

"So, you know, kid, according to thief culture, if your going to court Kat, you now owe me two dozen goats."

"It's a dozen," Eddie corrected.

"Yeah, but Kat's worth two," Hamish said with a wink.

Through it all, Hale said nothing.Then, finally, he smiled. "I'm afraid I'm all out of goats at the moment, but I've got some ruby cuff links you can have."

"No." Bobby shook his head. "It's goats or nothing."

"Sorry, Kat." Hale shrugged disappointed. "It was fun while it lasted."

"Don't look at me." Kat threw up her hands. "I'm officially ignoring all of you."
