Kick Keswick, once a jewel thief living an exciting double life, has now retired in simple luxury to the south of France. But when an old enemy resurfaces— threatening to expose countless fake jewels she'd carefully substituted over years of secret theft—Kick is ready to act.

Back in London, Kick finds herself with more employment than she bargained on at a company whose status is much more precarious than she'd thought. Her enemy, in disguise, circles ever closer. And a young nun comes to Kick with a mysterious jewel-encrusted figurine and a story of greed and murder.

To balance on this high wire, Kick must sneak into a high-society wedding in the Italian Alps, break into an ancient castle owned by a very modern murderer, and do it all with her customary panache, style, and grace. Can she keep one step ahead of the most seductively ruthless foe she's ever encountered?

"Break out the bubbly (Dom Perignon, of course)! Kellogg's high-flying, high-class jewelry thief turned jewelry sleuth, Kick Keswick, is back.... Decadent as a finely shaved white truffle, frothy as a lemon soufflé, Kellogg's delectably glamorous Kick Keswick mystery series offers a zesty, sensuous foray into the lifestyles of the obscenely wealthy and egregiously infamous."


"Kick Keswick, bling-burglar extraordinaire, "rocks" again. Her unapologetic joie de vivre, unhampered by qualms about age, weight or fleecing philistines, will thrill. . ."

—Kirkus Reviews

"Readers who agree that upper-crust manners and mannerisms are more important than honesty, integrity or abiding by the law will be most satisfied."

—Publishers Weekly

Kick Keswick and her adventures are:


—The Hollywood Reporter

"As delightful as a chocolate souffle."



—Janet Evanovich
