Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Title: Uncommon Criminals
Author: Ally Carter
Release: June 21st 2011

Goodreads Summary: 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.

I recently read and reviewed Heist Society and I loved it! Ally is a genius! I can't wait to see what next thing Kat does and how she solves the problems that she gets herself into! =)


  1. This sounds like an interesting read. Will have to find out more :)

  2. I'm so excited for Uncommon Criminals as well! Ally Carter's novel always so much fun to read and I'll be just as curious to see how Kat will find a way of getting out the troublesome situations she seems to find herself in...
