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.

I loved this crossover novella so much. It was my first Gallagher Girls read, but not my first Heist Society book.

As always Hale is as charming as ever and still knows how to both frustrate Kat and make her heart flutter all in the span of minutes. This time however, Kat is on the outside and it's Hale stuck right in the midst of the action. He is not alone though, he has just met Macey (a Gallagher Girl) and both are trying to figure out each others hidden persona, when the drama begins. Macey and Hale team up to save the day with the help of Kat and Abby.

It's a very quick read, lots of fun and a new insight into Hale's everyday life, when he's not trying to steal things with his girlfriend.

Looking forward to more Heist books and to starting the Gallagher Girls series now.


  1. I thought his was really fun and I haven't read the G-girls series, but I did love getting a different view of Hale.

    1. I hope she writes more like this! :)

  2. Oh this was definitely such a fun cross-over novella! I'd love to see more like this from Ally. =)
