Summary
"LOOT hits the jackpot." -- Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author

On a foggy night in Amsterdam, a man falls from a rooftop to the wet pavement below. It's Alfie McQuinn, the notorious cat burglar, and he's dying. As sirens wail in the distance, Alfie manages to get out two last words to his young son, March: "Find jewels."

But March learns that his father is not talking about a stash of loot. He's talking about Jules, the twin sister March never knew he had. No sooner than the two find each other, they're picked up by the police and sent to the world's worst orphanage. It's not prison, but it feels like it.

March and Jules have no intention of staying put. They know their father's business inside and out, and they're tired of being pushed around. Just one good heist, and they'll live the life of riches and freedom most kids only dream about.

Watch out! There are wild kids on the loose and a crime spree coming ...
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When master jewel thief Alfie McQuin dies, his stashed set of clues and cryptic last words to March, his 12-year-old son and apprentice, mark the beginning of a race against time. The first clue leads March to discover his twin sister, Jules, a traveling circus acrobat. Tossed into a group home, they meet Darius, a juvenile delinquent with a soft spot for Izzy, a code-cracking hacker. The four join forces, busting out of the home and into a series of high-stakes heists to reclaim seven cursed moonstone gems once stolen by Alfie. The reward promised is a sizzling seven million bucks, enough to set them up with the home Alfie never lived to realize. The problem? There's a curse on the twins, prophesied to culminate before their thirteenth birthday next week. Sassy narration, smart quips, pigeon drops, and slang worthy of an episode of Dragnet make this fast-paced tale of topsy-turvy antics a joy from beginning to end. Don't try these high jinks at home, but give this book to anyone who loved the 39 Clues series.--Fredriksen, Jeanne Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Jewel theft has never been as fun as in 39 Clues contributor Watson's action-packed novel featuring Mission: Impossible-style escapades from two young cat burglars. After world- famous jewel thief Alfie McQuin plunges to his death from an Amsterdam rooftop, his son March, a witness to the accident (or was it murder?), is shocked to learn he has a twin sister, Jules. The reason for the siblings' separation at age two appears to involve seven missing and purportedly cursed moonstones. Led by clues left by their deceased father, the twins try to retrieve the moonstones for a $7 million reward, instead of entering the foster care system ("[March] knew where to go to buy a fake passport in five European capitals and he knew how much it cost. Things he didn't know how to do: Sit in a classroom. Obey authority. Follow rules"). Along with two accomplices, March and Jules use trickery, aerial stunts, and quick thinking to complete their mission and stay ahead of professional thieves. The high level of suspense, ultra-short chapters, and fast pace will hook readers of all stripes. Ages 8-12. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
