Perfect Scoundrels (Heist Society #3) by Ally Carter

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it's that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting--or stealing--whatever they want. No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale's family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother's billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there's no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won't let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother's will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company's fortune. So instead of being the heir--this time, Hale might be the mark. Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she's willing to save her boyfriend's company if it means losing the boy.

This book kept me on edge the whole time. I love Ally Carter. The only disappointing thing was that we didn't find out what Hale's first name is :( But we did learn what his family calls him. I'd like to here the story behind that one.

This time, it's Hale being conned. Kat is torn between telling him about her suspicions or keeping in the and prevent him from being hurt if her suspicions are unfounded. Hale ends up finding out and is extremely mad, but he soon realizes that he is too close to this case. So Kat and the rest of the crew must con the conman.

Perfect Scoundrels was a lot more suspenseful than the first two. I honestly thought they weren't going to be able to pull it off. And Chapter 43 was a killer chapter. I was so stunned!!!

Perfect Scoundrels is an amazing book for people who love mystery and intrigue. Be sure to grab a copy!
