    "If you are looking for a book about a heist, Terminal Rage is NOT for you. Terminal Rage is about a terrorist attack after 9/11. Although it is a fiction book with lots of suspense and thrills, it does not involve a heist."

    "This is not your typical heist story, as it's turned on its head a bit. The story revolves around a girl stealing something back from some other thieves so as to clear her father's name. Of course, stealing stuff is what the family does -- it's just that the dad didn't steal these particular things. It's a lot of fun to read. "
