Two Good ThievesBook - 2010
There are three things you need to be a good thief. You need to be faster than the speed of light. You need to be invisible. And, most of all, you need to be lucky. Baz and Demi have always been lucky.In the searing heat of an unnamed South American city, a gang of child-thieves runs wild. Demi has the gift of speed - he can pick a pocket and be gone before his victim has even noticed he was there. Baz is his lookout - no one sees her unless she wants them to. It's like a game: dodging the law, keeping one step ahead, being the fastest, the cleverest, the best. But one day, almost by accident, they steal a dazzling, beautiful, priceless jewel - and make a very dangerous enemy.
