Publisher's Summary

In 1886 New York, a respectable architect shouldn't have any connection to the notorious gang of thieves and killers that rules the underbelly of the city. But when John Cross' son racks up an unfathomable gambling debt to Kent's Gents, Cross must pay it back himself. All he has to do is use his inside knowledge of high society mansions and museums to craft a robbery even the smartest detectives won't solve. The take better include some cash, too - the bigger the payout, the faster this will be over. With a newfound talent for sniffing out vulnerable and lucrative targets, Cross becomes invaluable to the gang. But Cross's entire life has become a balancing act, and it will only take one mistake for it all to come crashing down - and for his family to go down too.

Annoying characters and outrageous plot.

I had high hopes for this as it started out capturing my attention and the main plot line was promising. However, it began bashing the reader over the head with the class conflict of the time. I get it after the first ten mentions. Stop wasting my time. And then after all the racism and eugenics displayed by the family, the entire group succumbs to temptations? Granny is smoking opium? Give me a break. It was all extremes throughout which had me rooting against them all and nearly giving up on the book.
