Description

'Vita set her jaw, and nodded at New York City in greeting, as a boxer greets an opponent before a fight.' 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.

Professional reviews

"Margaret Cabourn-Smith gives a mesmerizing performance of this exhilarating heist story set in Prohibition-era New York City. Vita sails from England to visit her grandfather after he has been swindled out of his crumbling family mansion by a mobster. Listeners hear her indignant determination as she bands together with a young pickpocket and two circus apprentices to steal back a valuable emerald taken from the mansion. What follows is a thrilling, nonstop adventure about four kids who try to outwit the con man and his gang. Cabourn-Smith treats listeners to a wide array of voices and accents to portray British Vita and her mother, the Russian animal trainer, the Irish orphan girl, shouting newsboys in the street, and the New York thugs.
