When a heist goes wrong, teen thief Ash finds herself in a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse.

Ashley "Ash" Arthur is a teen thief. Motivated by the thrills as much as the money, she's pulled off some amazing heists with the help of her childhood friend Benjamin, who acts as tech support. Now she's got the world's richest man in her sights, convinced that Hammond Buckland has 2 million dollars hidden away in his corporate HQ.

Ash isn't the only one with an interest in Buckland. The Australian government gets his fortune if he dies on their soil, so they've sent their #2 assassin, Peachey, to kill him. With Ash and Peachey both sneaking around the office building and working at cross purposes, it's only a matter of time before their paths cross and Peachey decides Ash has seen too much to live.

Once it's a matter of life and death, can Ash keep her eye on the prize?

Set over the course of a single night within a single building, this is a page-turning thriller with gadgets, guts, and summer-blockbuster action.

Don’t get caught.
The girl’s instinct was to move now. Screw the preparation.Screw the plan. Come up with something new, quickly. Shewas running out of time.The fluorescent lights on the walls and ceiling of the cabinhad been switched off— the gloom inside the plane was onlyoccasionally pierced by the reading lamps of individual pas-sengers. The roaring of the engines outside was dulled to amuted hum. The flight attendants had given out drinks andsnacks, come back to take the wrappers away, and now sat intheir seats up front.By the girl’s watch, the plane was due to land in nineteenminutes. Which meant the descent would start in thirteen min-utes. Which meant the captain would switch on the seat-beltsign in nine or ten minutes. Lights up, tray tables up, seatsupright. Everything up as the plane goes down. All the otherpassengers would awaken, and buckle themselves in.She had slipped a diuretic into passenger 8C’s sparklingwine thirty-eight minutes ago, when she asked him if he hadfinished with his business magazine. The guy had given it toher, and sipped his drink without a hint of suspicion. But hestill hadn’t gotten up to go to the toilet.
