Kick Keswick, one of the most charming, enchanting, and best-dressed heroines of fiction, discovers that a life of crime can be impossible to leave behind.
Kick Keswick has lived an extraordinary life. For twenty-five years she was the power behind the throne at a venerable London auction house and a master jewel thief. (Stealing only from those who deserved it, of course.) All that changed when she fell in love with Commander Thomas Curtis of Scotland Yard and retired to live respectably in Provence, cushioned in beautiful food and wine. But now someone is stealing irreplaceable jewels from Paris to Portofino---and using Kick's signature techniques. And to make matters worse, Thomas has disappeared with her secret cache of precious stones. It looks like someone is trying to lure Kick out of retirement, and perhaps Thomas is involved. With Marne Davis Kellogg's trademark descriptions of fabulous places, wonderful food, and the ultimate in luxurious living, Priceless is a delicious summer treat.
