Summary Growing up during the Great Depression in a segregated West Virginia coal town, Doris Payne was told her dreams were unattainable. But she vowed to turn the tables after the owner of a jewelry store threw her out when a white customer arrived. Using her Southern charm, quick wit, and fascination with magic, Payne began shoplifting jewelry from local stores. Over the course of six decades, her talents grew until she became a world-class jewel thief, pulling off numerous daring diamond robberies, while her Jewish boyfriend fenced the gems to Hollywood celebrities.
