Description

Kick Keswick, once a jewel thief living an exciting double life, has now retired in simple luxury to the south of France. But when an old enemy resurfaces— threatening to expose countless fake jewels she'd carefully substituted over years of secret theft—Kick is ready to act.

Back in London, Kick finds herself with more employment than she bargained on at a company whose status is much more precarious than she'd thought. Her enemy, in disguise, circles ever closer. And a young nun comes to Kick with a mysterious jewel-encrusted figurine and a story of greed and murder.

To balance on this high wire, Kick must sneak into a high-society wedding in the Italian Alps, break into an ancient castle owned by a very modern murderer, and do it all with her customary panache, style, and grace. Can she keep one step ahead of the most seductively ruthless foe she's ever encountered?

"Break out the bubbly (Dom Perignon, of course)! Kellogg's high-flying, high-class jewelry thief turned jewelry sleuth, Kick Keswick, is back.... Decadent as a finely shaved white truffle, frothy as a lemon soufflé, Kellogg's delectably glamorous Kick Keswick mystery series offers a zesty, sensuous foray into the lifestyles of the obscenely wealthy and egregiously infamous."
—Booklist

"Kick Keswick, bling-burglar extraordinaire, "rocks" again. Her unapologetic joie de vivre, unhampered by qualms about age, weight or fleecing philistines, will thrill. . ."
—Kirkus Reviews

"Readers who agree that upper-crust manners and mannerisms are more important than honesty, integrity or abiding by the law will be most satisfied."
—Publishers Weekly

Kick Keswick and her adventures are:
"Addictive"
—The Hollywood Reporter

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 26, 2007 – Kick Keswick, the heroine of this frothy novel from Kellogg (Perfect), is bored by retirement, so it's a good thing her world just got more exciting: a scandal at the London auction house where she worked for 30 years threatens to expose her well-hidden habit of stealing jewels and replacing them with meticulous fakes. She soon finds herself trying to singlehandedly rescue the company and untangle several moneymaking schemes-all of them, frankly, quite dclass-whereby certain lowlifes, including her ex-fianc and perennial enemy, Owen Brace, are attempting to rise above their station. The hypocrisy is breathtaking: Kick is happy to admit that she overcame her dirt-poor Oklahoma background through a methodical campaign of theft from the filthy rich, so why should it bother her that others do the same? Readers who agree that upper-crust manners and mannerisms are more important than honesty, integrity or abiding by the law will be most satisfied.
