Heist Society Chapter 5

By Ally Carter

Chapter 5

  • This time, the shadowy voice belongs to Arturo Taccone. Yikes.
  • He tells her that he will "take a great many pains, if you will" (5.13) to get his paintings back. Our Spidey Sense tells us that he doesn't mean his own pains. He means something more like a breaking Kat's knees in the middle of the night. Or worse.
  • Kat tries to tell him that her father didn't steal the paintings, but he gives her a deadline to return the paintings anyway: two weeks.
  • Back at Hale's mansion, Kat fills Hale in on what's going on. She tells him that they are going to get Taccone his paintings back... by stealing them, obviously.
