Thieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot is the gripping sequel to Jodi Compton's Hailey's War. When we last left her, West Point dropout Hailey Cain had defied a powerful mobster to protect a pregnant teenager and child. The events of Hailey's War nearly cost Cain her life, but Thieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot sees Hailey back in Los Angeles, now second-in-command to rising gangster Serena "Warchild" Delgadillo. At the heart of this thrilling novel is a complex case of stolen identity, ruthless motives, and violent crime that puts Hailey back on the road, with her old friend Warchild by her side, to reclaim her name and chase down the murderer who has taken it. Fast-paced, suspenseful, and teeming with powerful young characters, Thieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot is a ringing affirmation of Jodi Compton's high-octane talent.

""Thieves get rich, saints get shot"--or so the saying gus on the streets of L.A. The heroine of this novel considers herself neither a thief nor a saint, just a woman trying to survive after learning she has a fatal brain tumor. Hailey Cain has lost a promising military career. When she's framed for murder, she joins forces with the leader of a female street gang. Narrator Angela Dawe ratchets up the tension with her fast-paced performance, making it easy to follow the complex story and multiple female characters. More than anything, this book has heart, and Dawe makes the listener feel every beat. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
