In Heist, our heroine is a tenacious young museum intern, hoping that a summer of art conservation will help her realize her career ambitions. But in the midst of preparations for an upcoming local art exhibit, a violent thief breaks into the museum; strangely, nothing is missing. With the museum staff and the local police department scratching their heads, our intern digs a little deeper and comes to suspect that one painting in particular may be the key to unraveling a centuries-old mystery.

The break-in at the museum lands in the lap of our hero, the youngest detective in the department's history. He's not buying the tales our intern is spinning. In fact, he's almost certain the break-in was an inside job, and he believes that our heroine (who happened to be the first employee to arrive at the scene of the crime) may have something to do with it.

After the astonishing discovery of a treasure map hidden in a painting, our heroine is certain she knows the thief's motive, but the detective has his doubts. With the help of her best friend (a budding art historian) and our hero's adventure-seeking pilot buddy, they must race to hunt down the truth (and the gold) before the dangerous thief finds them. Filled with historical puzzles and nail-biting fights, Heist is a thrilling mystery spanning two centuries.
