Review - Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story by Ally Carter

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.

My review: I wasn't sure if I was going to read this at first as I haven't read The Gallagher Girls yet but I am glad I did because I now want to read The Gallagher Girls after I have finished reading Perfect Scoundrels.

Their is not really much you can say about Double Crossed without giving away the plot but although I love the fact that Hale and Kat pull heists it was nice seeing Hale team up with someone completely different from Kat to help to try and catch the thieves instead of being one.

I think the story could have been a little longer but it's only a novella hopefully Ally will write more of these. Maybe Ally could have Macey turn up in and help Kat and Hale out on a heist in a future book in the Heist Society series.
