Summary

The Addams Family meets Despicable Me in the first book of this new trilogy, perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Pseudonymous Bosch!

The Crim family is full of notorious criminals. Notoriously inept, that is. Uncle Knuckles once tried to steal a carnival. Great-Uncle Bernard held himself hostage by accident. Aunt Drusilla died slipping on a banana peel. But Imogen is different. She was born with a skill for scandal. A knack for the nefarious. A mastery of misdemeanors.

Despite her natural talent for all things unlawful, Imogen got out of the family business years ago. But when the rest of the Crims are accused of pulling off a major heist - which seems doubtful, to say the least - Imogen is forced to step in to clear their names. Because only a truly skilled criminal can prove the bumbling family's innocence....

Crime pays kinda

Any additional comments?

Meet the crazy Crims and Imogen who really wants anything than to be a Crim now that she is in a girls school, after the death of Big Nanna who was the only one who believed in her. She wants to get away from crime yet the family get blamed for a burglary that she knew they couldn't commit as they are useless. Yet the challenge of coming home would be more testing than any challenge of the girls going for head girl.
An entertaining, well written book with fleshed out characters that makes it ever eventful as well full of many a twist and turn. Brilliantly analysed characters as well as funny scenarios including a greased pig.
