Publisher Comments:

Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life: Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she's simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That's why Kat isn't surprised when she's asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.
There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn't been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long-and in Kat's world, history almost always repeats itself. But it's the third problem that makes Kat's crew the most nervous, and that is . . . the emerald is cursed.
Kat might be in way over her head, but she's not going down without a fight. After all, she has her best friend- the gorgeous Hale-and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses and realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time. Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules.
Critics and fans alike have fallen for the Heist Society series (no conning necessary). With more mystery, non-stop action, romance and humor, this second novel is just as irresistible.

The perfect sequel to Heist Society, Uncommon Criminals is a wonderful read for anyone who enjoys a witty heist adventure. Following Kat and her crew is fantastic fun, and you'll never be able to guess what will happen next! It's a perfect blend of action, comedy, mystery and, of course, some boy problems.

Ally Carter is one of my absolute favorite authors, and I think this might be her best book yet. I always recommend her books to any friend who is looking for something new to read, and I haven't had anyone not love her yet!
