Author: Ellen Simpson


Life gets weird for Marcey Daniels when art thief Charlie Mock dies and leaves her a curious and much sought-after book.

Suddenly a determined Interpol agent, Wei Topeté, is sniffing around. Everything’s gone sideways for the agent since Mock’s death – a man she’s been chasing for half her career.

Enter the mysterious, flirtatious, Kat Barber, a slow-moving accident who has been bargaining for her freedom with things that don’t belong to her. She expected she’d have the pick of the estate of her criminal mentor. Now Kat desperately needs that book and will do whatever it takes to pry it from Marcey’s hands.

Everyone has their own agenda in this intricate suspense thriller. Surrounded by a diverse cast of queer and lesbian women, and with double-crosses piling up, will Marcey see the trap in time?

    Marcey Daniels receives a book after her unknown father’s death. It seems to be about his last job. Marcey gets in contact with five different women who have the same enemy, a DA. All this makes the story brilliant, interesting, twisted and intense, a little too intense for me.
    The characters are very well defined. They all have their own struggles but with a common obstacle to pull down, the hateful DA. Each one has their own reason to see this woman go down and they don’t mind what they have to do.
    I liked the story but being the sucker for romance I am, I missed that in the book. But then again, this is not a romance story.
    I gave it four stars not because it is not a good book but because it is not my kind of book if I’m looking for romance.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.

    All in all the story is really twisted. Sometimes I had a hard time to follow, although the characters are very special. To read this book was a little hate/love to go on. It was just not my kind of book.

    This was my first book by Ellen Simpson. I will definitely come back for more. A Heist Story is not a book to be read on the side, the storyline and the multitude of characters are far to complicated for that. It is not a romance, after all… But it really deserves your full attention. I really liked Simpsons style of writing, she has a great eye for detail. And, this may be just me, I loved the naming of the chapters.
