Eighteen-year-old Twist, one of the most daring street artists in London, doesn't have much.
No money, no home and no family. When he finds himself on the run from the police, Twist knows he's about to lose the one thing he has left - his freedom. That's when he's saved by the mysterious Dodge who introduces him to charismatic art 'collector' Cornelius Fagin and the beautiful but dangerous Red.
Fagin has a big deal coming up involving the theft of a series of priceless paintings and Twist is just the man he needs for the job. Twist is soon drawn deeper into the group and thinks he finally has the chance to be part of something.
But as his feelings for Red grow, he discovers she has a secret - one that binds her to the bullying Bill Sikes and means that, unbeknownst to Fagin and the crew, they are no longer playing for money.
They're playing for their lives. From a brutal east London estate, across the rooftops and skyscrapers of the city, to a glittering auction at the top of the Shard, TWIST doesn't let up.
