The Good Thieves


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.

A wild and wonderful adventure set at the turn of the century, where brave and resourceful children call the shots, confound the criminal underworld and surprise even themselves. The young heroine suffers an injustice and makes a plan almost in the same instant. Her sidekicks use their astonishing talents to help her navigate the mean streets of New York..

This is a book bursting with fun and danger where children are unstoppable, villains are evil, and castle walls are no barrier to those determined to right a wrong, even if they break the law!
