What happens when a gang of kid thieves is hired by an adult in financial trouble to pull off reuniting three lost sapphires? The result is filled with fast chases, close calls and a bit of the paranormal.

Sting is a fast paced well written story about a gang of young jewel thieves. They face the same problems as any family, and they are a family since they live together and work together. Boys will love the action scenes complete with death defying acts and car chases. Girls will also be able to identify with the female characters and the family drama. This book is recommended for any reader who loves a fast paced, action read driven by well developed characters ( )

I didn't read the first book in the series but that wasn't much of a problem for me besides some minor confusion whenever they would refer to the first book. What was a problem for me was the usual spy plot and such. For example when they are planning a heist they throw out the "usual" names for famous heist getaways/ideas like Orange Vest and Loutsenheizer.
It was kind of a mindless read for me as there was not many things to fugue out and a straight plot. This is to be expected as this is a book for middle schoolers. ( )

Rule Number One for Cat Burglars:
Never Do a Favor for a Friend.
So why is March McQuin dangling upside-down twenty feet above a stone floor in the middle of the night, instead of tucked in bed like a regular kid? Along with his twin sister, Jules, he s set on stealing a set of stunning diamonds. It should have been an easy job, in and out. Except another thief got there first. March and Jules are lucky to escape with their lives, and one measly stone.
Now the botched heist has created a world of trouble. The stone they grabbed was the Morning Star, one of a trio of famous sapphires, and it s cursed. The theft puts the twins and their friends in the crosshairs of Interpol, the FBI, and a vicious adult gang of criminals. And worst of all, the only way to break the curse and set everything to rights is by pulling off two more impossible heists... and stealing the other two sapphires in the set.
Break out the black gloves. Lay out the masks. There s a full moon coming, and jewels to steal...
