So why is March McQuin dangling upside-down twenty feet above a stone floor in the middle of the night, instead of tucked in bed like a regular kid? Along with his twin sister, Jules, he’s set on stealing a set of stunning diamonds. It should have been an easy job, in and out. Except another thief got there first. March and Jules are lucky to escape with their lives, and one measly stone.

Now the botched heist has created a world of trouble. The stone they grabbed was the Morning Star, one of a trio of famous sapphires, and it’s cursed. The theft puts the twins and their friends in the crosshairs of Interpol, the FBI, and a vicious adult gang of criminals. And worst of all, the only way to break the curse and set everything to rights is by pulling off two more impossible heists... and stealing the other two sapphires in the set.

Break out the black gloves. Lay out the masks. There’s a full moon coming, and jewels to steal...

    The four friends (March, Jules, Dariua and Izzy) from the book "Loot" are back again in this exciting book. March and his friends were retired living in a apartment building that they bought entirely and study still have almost 20 million from there last heist. Only problem is Hamish (March's dead dad Alfie's close friend) really wants them to steal a diamond for him - the 4 have no choice but to agree to help since he did a lot for them on there last heist. The heist goes good except for the fact that they now have ruthless criminals that go by the name "Top Cat" after the heist they realize they stole the "Morning Glory" one of three cursed gems. Once again they go through a crazy set of heist because there fortune has been stolen by there "Banker" ... This was a dramatic, exciting, book full of even more friendship then the last one.

                    Sting, the amazing sequel to Loot. One thing March knows is not to do a favor for a friend, so why did he go to get one of the most cursed gems in the world for a friend? Read the book to find out.
