On the grubby outskirts of Paris, Grace restores bric-a-brac, mends teapots, and resets gems. She calls herself Julie, says she s from California, and slips back to a rented room at night. In truth, home is Garland, Tennessee, where two young men have just been paroled. Both were jailed for a crime that Grace planned.The heist went bad but not before she was on a plane to Prague, contraband in her bag.As Grace s web of deception unravels, she begins a cat-and-mouse game that echoes the best of Alfred Hitchcock and Patricia Highsmith and is sure to appeal to fans of "The Girl on the Train.""

From our buyer, Margaret Terwey: Unbecoming is a highly praised debut novel of psychological suspense about a daring art heist, a cat-and-mouse waiting game, and a small-town girl who discovers her true gift is deceit.
