"A dazzling tale of wild hope, lingering grief, admirable self-sufficiency, and intergenerational adoration." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Vita tests her own limits, and readers will thrill at her cleverness, tenacity, and close escapes." --Booklist "A satisfying adventure." --Kirkus ReviewsFrom award-winning author Katherine Rundell comes a fast-paced, sharp-turning, and utterly thrilling adventure, one driven at its heart by an extraordinarily powerful evocation of the loyalty and love between a grandfather and his granddaughter. Fresh off the boat from England, Vita Marlowe has a job to do. Her beloved grandfather Jack has been cheated out of his home and possessions by a notorious conman with Mafia connections. Seeing Jack's spirit is broken, Vita is desperate to make him happy again, so she devises a plan to outwit his enemies and recover his home. She finds a young pickpocket, working the streets of the city. And, nearby, two boys with highly unusual skills and secrets of their own are about to be pulled into her lawless, death-defying plan. Katherine Rundell's fifth novel is a heist as never seen before--the story of a group of children who will do anything to right a wrong.
