Double Crossed : A Spies and Thieves Story

Gallahar Girls and Heist Society Presenting Gallahar Girls #5.5, Heist Society #2.5 Double Crossed : A Spies and Thieves Story by Ally Carter.

Here is the summary of the book:

Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?

W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?

There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.

Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.

When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.

Lets be honest, I haven't really read any book from Gallahar Girls or Heist Society yet but I requested this on a whim. It is only rarely that Disney allows bloggers to request on Netgalley and I was like why not lets see what this is about. Now that I have read it and am writing the review, let me tell you, you are looking at a fan. Man this was simply brilliant.

I don't normally start reading books that come in between the series. If the foundation is not clear then reading about them certainly doesn't make sense one bit at all. But Double Crossed, let me tell you was in a league of its own. It can almost be treated as a standalone story. A connection between Gallahar Girls series and Heist Society series both popular in their own right.

Features Macy, Hale and Kat. A high profile auction, a prize jewelry  masked robbers, a spy and a thief, and a battle of wits. Brought back a few good memories of spy kids, although this is more of the fashion of rich heirs and heiresses but more than meets the eye type thing. Action with a cool use of intellect..... double crossed has double crossed me into being a fan.

"Action and adventure in the most unlikely of places - Ally Carter's Double Crossed created a perfect blend of Gallahar girls and Heist Society"
