"Like the perfect heist, Donna Moore's screwball caper is slick, audacious and hugely rewarding."--Chris Ewan, author of The Good Thief's Guide to Paris

"Roll out the awards shelf, Donna is going to grab them all."--Ken Bruen, award-winning author of London Boulevard

La Contessa Letitzia di Ponzo and her sister Signora Teodora Grisiola are not who they might seem. Now in their seventies, they're actually Letty and Dora, a pair of ex-hookers turned con-artists who've decided to steal a pair of gold, jewel-encrusted Tibetan shih tzu dog statuettes from a Glasgow museum. Unfortunately, it seems everyone wants to get their hands on the expensive pooches. There's the dodgy chauffeur, a pair of delinquents who work in a crematorium, an out-of-work insomniac bent on revenge, and an innocent young islander who's obsessed with returning the dogs to Tibet. And yet the elderly con-artists might just manage to execute their plan and live the rest of their lives in the lap of luxury. That's if they can avoid the Australian hitman with his sights on a very different future for them. . .

Donna Moore is the author of Go to Helena Handbasket , winner of the 2007 Lefty Award for most humorous crime novel. She has short stories in various anthologies, including Damn Near Dead and A Hell of a Woman (both Busted Flush Press). Donna runs the blog Big Beat From Badsville, which focuses on Scottish crime fiction.
