The Barnes & Noble Review
Kay Hooper's enchanting first book is back in print after many years, packaged here with a bonus historical novella, Masquerade. Jenny Courtenay, the high-spirited heroine of Lady Thief, has a secret life as a female highwayman, a.k.a. the Cat, who robs gentlemen of their jewelry and money -- mysteriously returning both later on. One of her targets, the Duke of Spencer, is fascinated by this golden-eyed thief and eventually uncovers both her identity and her motive: Jenny is looking to avenge the murder of her father years ago and uncover the murderer who took his talisman ring. Jenny's prolonged visit to London gives her even more opportunity to explore the simmering relationship with the duke, as he helps her uncloak a murderer amid the glitter of London society. Ginger Curwen

Reading this book can be turned into a fun drinking game--how many Georgette Heyer incidents can you recognize? Even the denoument, the startling discovery of a missing talisman ring, is directly from one of her books--The Talisman Ring, to be exact. At least change the object of the search, please. then you can call it 'homage', not plagiarism.

Her characters and plot here are not exciting and nothing near as deep as her more recent offerings. Hooper is very good with a pschological thriller, but not good with pure romance.

Even though it was not like Kay Hoopers other books it is very exciting. It definatly keeps you entertained.
