About this book
Leisl is an art thief and an exceptionally good one. She steals priceless paintings from Vienna’s art galleries for the underworld’s private collectors. A life of anonymous notes and meticulous planning, of adrenaline-fuelled dead drops and dramatic escapes, suits her restless spirit and a desire for solitude and anonymity. But when Leisl finds a body on Stephansplatz underground steps, instead of the expected note, she understands that she’s involved in a deadly game and that her life is in danger.
