Kick Keswick has lived an extraordinary life. After twenty-five years as the power behind the throne at a venerable London auction house - and a master jewel thief - Kick fell in love with Commander Thomas Curtis of Scotland Yard and retired to Provence, surrounded by beautiful food, wine, and picnics in lavender fields. But now someone is stealing priceless jewels from Paris to Portofino - and using Kick's signature techniques.

JEWELS WERE HER SPECIALTY-
As the Shamrock Burglar, Kick Keswick was the most successful jewel thief in history. But like any intelligent woman, she quit while she was ahead. Retiring to a hideaway in Provence, Kick is enjoying good food, easy living, and a highly satisfying marriage to the one person who knows her secret-former Scotland Yard Commander Thomas Curtis.
UNTIL LOVE TOOK OVER...
Someone is stealing from the rich and famous along the posh Riviera...and leaving behind the Shamrock Burglar's calling card. Before Kick can protest her innocence, Thomas deserts her-perhaps to head the task force to hunt her down.
AND TURNED HER LIFE UPSIDE DOWN...
Both outraged and heartbroken, Kick abandons her cozy life and goes on the run. But she isn't giving up. She intends to get even by catching the real thief with a spectacular trap-a plan that will either land Kick in jail or become the biggest heist she has ever done!
"This is a gem, as carefully crafted as a Cartier bijou...and like a ring set in platinum, the Italian Riviera landscape makes a gorgeous backdrop for Kick's escapades."
"[A] sensual, suspense tale."
