The story of the most spectacularly successful shoplifting gang in history, who plundered stores in England and Europe in the 1960s and 1970s—the Kangaroo Gang—led by a master thief "King" Arthur Delaney. From the mid 1960s, a brazen band of Australian thieves ran riot in London for more than a decade, pulling off the most daring heists Scotland Yard had ever seen. They were tagged by the Press as the Kangaroo Gang. The gang, led by the charismatic "King" Arthur Delaney, targeted the plush emporia of Knightsbridge and the fine jewelers of Mayfair. But the King didn't stop there, criss-crossing Europe to lay siege to the luxury retailers of Paris, Brussels, Rome, and beyond. The Kangaroo Gang operated at a time before closed-circuit television cameras. They elevated shoplifting to an art form practiced without guns or violence. The King always found a way to simply "disappear" with the loot. This is also a love story between the King and his "Queen" Alexis, who tried to tame the greatest of traveling thieves. The King's 30-year criminal odyssey culminated in the biggest job of his career—six million pounds worth of precious gems from Asprey of London, jeweler to the Queen—in broad daylight. King of Thieves is a true story, soon to be made into a major feature film.

Alli must risk everything to save her new family from a rogue organization that is threatening the Thieves Guild’s existence—and the lives of all its members—in this “not to be missed sequel” (Kirkus Reviews) to Rules for Thieves. Alli Rosco, former orphan and thief, is free after her disastrous Thieves Guild trial, which left an innocent woman dead while Alli’s partner-in-crime, Beck, fled. Now Alli is getting more than just a fresh start: her long-lost brother, Ronan, has come forward to claim responsibility for her and let her live with him on a trial basis. They try to mend the rift that started when Alli was dropped off at the orphanage while Ronan became a lawyer in Ruhia. But as determined as she is to make things work, Alli can’t seem to stay out of trouble. To make matters worse, Alli finds a surprise guest on her doorstep one night: Beck. He’s on the run and brings news of the Shadow Guild, a rogue organization that is trying to overthrow the current king of the Thieves Guild. Their friends are in real danger. And Beck needs Alli’s help one more time to bring the Shadows down. Once again, Alli is forced to make a hard choice: save her friends, or lose her last chance to have a true family.
