Better than Priceless, much better than Perfect, still not as good as Brilliant. Dialogue is painfully pedestrian but the style and plot development manage a muffled echo of Brilliant's. The biggest annoyance, I found, was the gratuitous revision of details of the heroïne's past as established in the previous books. The changes were of no significance to the story, and yet they were made (or perhaps merely allowed). As a result my perception of the heroïne's personal character (because she's the ostensible narratrix) has begun to shift from interesting & perhaps admirable, to unreliable. That is, whereas after Brilliant I thought she would be an interesting person to meet, I'd now consider her a person to be avoided. And for a woman of such supposed class, she has become quite the braggart. Thank god for public lending libraries. ( )

Kick Keswick, once a jewel thief living an exciting double life, has now retired in simple luxury to the south of France. But when an old enemy resurfaces, threatening to expose the countless fake jewels Kick had carefully substituted during her years of secret theft, she is ready to act.
Back in London, Kick finds herself with more employment than she bargained for at a company whose status is much more precarious than she'd thought. Her enemy, in disguise, circles ever closer. And a young nun comes to Kick with a mysterious jewel-encrusted figurine, and a story of greed and murder. 
To balance on this high wire, Kick must sneak into an upper-crust wedding in the Italian Alps, break into an ancient castle owned by a very modern murderer, and do it all with her customary panache, style, and grace.  Can she keep one step ahead of the most seductively ruthless foe she's ever encountered?
