"Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the Fifth were born to lead very different lives - her family are criminal masterminds, while he comes from an apparently perfect dynasty. But both families know how to stay under the radar while getting - or stealing - whatever they want. 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 won't let him go that easily, especially after she is tipped off about an elaborate con to steal the company's fortune. Instead of being the heir, this time Hale might be the mark. Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first she has to decide. Is she willing to save her boyfriend's company if it means losing the boy?"
I am a very big Ally Carter fan, as anyone who knows me knows. So I have been long awaiting the arrival of Heist Society 3.
This book is a tad different to the others. For Kat, a lot more than an object is at stake. I was pleasantly surprised to meet more of Ally Carter's brilliant characters in this book, including our favourite brother's dad and a whole new level to Kat's large family. Mmmmm, picking a favourite character is always hard. I am, of course, rather fond of Kat and Hale, the main characters, but my favourites are probably between the Bagshaw brothers and Bobby Bishop (Kat's dad), because the brothers are hilarious at every moment they appear in her books and Bobby is the coolest dad a thief could ask for. His thoughts on Kat and Hale made me smile at the similarities they have to every teenager's life.
The only thing that I didn't like about the book was a part near the end involving Garrett, Uncle Eddie, Kat and a briefcase. This is only because it could be explained a little more, in my view.
I think this book would suit a reader who likes action-packed books with a humorous and romantic twist. I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends and have already got a very enthusiastic one begging me to let her read it. Overall, I give this book a 9 / 10!
