Rosita Ruins the Heist
"I steal things. Most times it's money, sometimes it’s people’s memories, and very rarely I steal people’s hearts. But more often I’m stealing cold hard cash."
Rosita Ruins the Heist is a thriller/science fiction novel following the adventures of a twenty-something woman living with the ghost of her grandmother, who is still very much alive and comfortably shacked up in a retirement home that Rosita pays for, mostly via criminal acts.
Her grandmother's memory is failing, and with it, Rosita's last chance to find her wayward father. But if she can just use her memory wiping device to restore memories instead of removing them, she has a chance to regain both her grandmother and her father and reunite her lost family members.
She sees the opportunity during one of her gang's heists to steal much-needed technology from a powerful and secretive global tech company. And then, she convinces her gang to do the job. Except, everything goes wrong. Well, it goes right for Rosita. Wrong for her friends.
And now, another local gang and the tech company are hot on her trail. She can either use the technology to cure her grandmother and find her father, or she can save her friends.
What will she do?
