Review: Double Crossed (Heist Society #2.5): A Spies and Thieves Story by Ally Carter

*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
Published: January 22nd, 2013 (Disney Hyperion)
Pages: 60
Rating: 5/5
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.
[Description from Goodreads]
This was a super quick read that I’ve been meaning to get to for months now. *sheepish grin* And yes, I just got around to it. I loved the Heist Society/Gallagher Girls combo, despite the fact that I’ve never read any of the Gallagher Girl books before. Though I definitely am now after getting a taste of them through Double Crossed! I kind of wish Kat was more involved in this one, because I love her voice and her relationship with Hale, but (somewhat) sadly, Hale was the main representative of Heist Society in this one.
Hale and Macey are on the other end of the heist this time- instead of being the criminals, they’re trying to stop the criminals. It was interesting to see them in action as heroes, though I do like them more as criminals (gosh, that sounds kinda bad). I highly recommend this one, even if you’re only familiar with one of the series (like me). It’s only eight short chapters long and features that fun, exciting spirit that’s in all of Ally’s books.
