Description

'A stunning debut. Weaving together a cast of loveable rogues, a richly detailed historical setting, and a cinematic thrill ride of a story, Medici Heist knocked us flat!'
The Duffer Brothers, creators of Netflix's STRANGER THINGS

Welcome to Florence, 1517, a world of intrigue and opulence, murder and betrayal.
Sharp-witted conwoman Rosa Cellini arrives in the city the same day that the Medici Pope, Leo X, returns to take up the reins of power. This is not a coincidence. The new Pope is extorting a mountain of indulgence money from the people of Florence to bolster his power and standing, and Rosa has a plan to take it back.

To pull off the Renaissance's greatest robbery, she'll recruit a team of highly skilled misfits: Sarra the tinkerer, Khalid the fighter, and Giacomo, the irrepressible master of disguise. But as the authorities draw closer and the Medici's noose pulls tighter around the land, old secrets resurface and tensions in the group start to flare. What began as a robbery could be the key to saving the city itself - if Rosa and company don't destroy each other first.

Get ready for an absolute swashbuckling riot, beginning with a 'mud' pie to the Pope's face, and ending with a climactic heist that would give Danny Ocean a run for his money. Bursting with action, Medici Heist is your next un-put-downable obsession.

This book is completely compelling stuff. The easy prose were totally and pleasantly unexpected. The story a crashing action packed assembling of a crew to make a robbery of the most powerful family in Florence in 1517. The Medici. It felt intense in places, tingling and magnificent.

Themes include: family, trust, friendship, deceit, religion, betrayal, love, robbery, heist, violence, riot.

I enjoyed every moment of this story. I rooted for the group to be successful, I cared for each character. So, when things started to implode, I wondered what would come next. Captivating and dazzling, you won’t want to miss this book.

I highly recommend Medici Heist by Caitlin Schneiderhan.
