English | Mystery, Thriller | ePUB, MOBI | 2.3 Mb
It’s been a year since professional thief Crissa Stone last pulled a job, and she’s spent that year under the radar, very carefully not drawing attention to herself. That kind of life is safe, but it’s boring, and it’s lonely, and it’s not very lucrative. So when Crissa starts to get antsy—and low on funds—she agrees to attend a business meeting that a contact has set up for her.
Flying out to balmy Los Angeles, Crissa is escorted into the home of art collector Emile Cota. Cota is in possession of several ancient artifacts from a troubled area of the world—artifacts that were not exactly legally obtained. Cota has made a deal with the government, agreeing to return the artifacts to their home country in exchange for not being prosecuted for their theft. Since making that deal, however, Cota has found a buyer for the artifacts, and now he needs someone to "steal" them before they’re handed over to the government, so he can sell them instead. As one of the best in the business, Crissa is the woman for the job. But if things go wrong, what should be the easiest job of her career—after all, she’s robbing a man who wants to be robbed—might turn out to be the most dangerous.
