CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The life of a teen thief sounds like a pretty interesting thing to read about to begin with, right? Well, throw in the biggest heist of the century, the country's second-deadliest assassin and a few life-threatening circumstances -- all in the course of one night -- and you've got Jack Heath's"Money Run."
Ash Arthur and her partner-in-crime, Benjamin, consider themselves professional thieves, and they work very hard for that title. Both of them are cunning and devious, especially Ash, who can come up with some crazy ways to get herself out of situations.
Benjamin is Ash's best friend, classmate and off-site tech support. He is very intelligent and a master of computers. Without Benjamin, Ash wouldn't have made it nearly as far in her thieving career. He also adds a bit of comic relief at needed times in the book.
Ash is a smart, brave and very feisty girl. She isn't afraid to run right into danger, especially if it's getting her out of another type of danger. She takes risks but not ones she doesn't think are necessary.
Ash's personality, combined with Benjamin's computer skills and intelligence, get them into quite a situation when attempting their biggest heist ever.
Other than the fact that they steal things, Ash and Benjamin are great characters. That really makes the book interesting, along with the fast-paced and riveting story of their biggest job ever.
I knew from the very first line of the prologue that "Money Run" would be an exciting ride, but I didn't realize just how exciting it would be. The book is full of thrills, and even a little bit of fear for the characters at times.
The further you read, the thicker the plot. The storyline never gets boring, instead retaining the reader's focus with plenty of action scenes.
Heath, a young Australian author, crafted a book that is filled with adventure and plenty of excitement. It will keep readers on the edge of their seats for sure."Money Run" is a great book for action or mystery lovers. It combines the two genres in a way that is thrilling to read.
