Publisher's Summary

Five criminals. Two forgeries. And one masterpiece of a heist.
Violet Winters - a professional thief born of a good, honest thief-and-con-artist stock - has been offered the heist of a lifetime. Steal a priceless Salvador Dali from the security-obsessed chairman of the Kilchester Bank and replace it with a forgery.
The fact that the "painting" is a signed, blank canvas doesn't matter. It's the challenge that gives Violet that familiar, addicting rush of adrenaline. Her quarry rests in a converted underground Cold War bunker. One way in, one way out. No margin for error.
But the reason Violet fled Kilchester is waiting right where she left him - an ex-lover with a murderous method for dumping a girlfriend. If her heist is to be a success, there will have to be a reckoning, or everything could go spinning out of control.
Her team of talented misfits assembled, Violet sets out to re-stake her claim on her reputation, exorcise some demons, and claim the prize. That is, if her masterpiece of a plan isn't derailed by a pissed-off crime boss - or betrayal from within her own ranks.

Good stuff!

Would you listen to The Dali Deception again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to "The Dali Deception" again. It is a fun book, a lot of witty and dry humor.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot kept me interested the whole time. I wanted to know how the heist and all the deceptions going along with it finished in the end.

Which character – as performed by R J Alldred – was your favorite?

I liked Violet the most. Close second was Big Terry

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Violet recruits Lucas to her enterprise, interrupting his latest con and on the fly, helping him sell it to his marks.

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable and definitely an author I would read more from in the future.

A fun heist story.

I really enjoyed the narrator, and the story was fun all the way through. It was a little hard to keep all of characters straight at times, and the timeline was a bit confusing.

Overall still a really fun book.
