Book ~ "Never Going Back" (2020) Sam Wiebe

From Goodreads ~ Before she went to prison, Alison Kidd was the best thief in the city. But Ali has changed. All she wants now is to clean up her act and work in her brother Dean's restaurant. She never wants to go back inside. On the day she gets out, Dean is supposed to pick her up. But he never shows. Ali makes her way to Dean's apartment and uses her unique skill set to let herself in. Dean is missing. After some investigation, Ali discovers that he was kidnapped and is being held hostage by powerful crime boss, Lisa Wan. Lisa is the reason that Ali was in prison and wants Ali to work one last job in exchange for Dean's safety. 

Now, to save her brother and her own future, Ali must pull off the toughest job of her career. 

Since she was in high school, Alison was a thief.  She eventually started working for Lisa, who she'd met in detention.  Lisa double crossed her and Alison ended up going to prison for a year.  She's just getting out and looking forward to staying clean and working in her younger brother Dean's restaurant.

Dean was supposed to pick her up at prison but doesn't show up.  Alison goes looking for him and discovers that Lisa had kidnapped him because she wants Alison to do one last job for her.  Alison can't say no because she wants to save her brother.

This is the fourth book I've read by this author and it was okay.  It was a quick read at about 130 pages so it's pretty high level.
