Brandon Vale is a career thief---the best there is. Or at least he was before he was thrown in prison for a jewel heist gone bad. And even more embarrassing, he had nothing to do with it. His time inside is going fairly quietly until the night hes broken out against his will by Richard Scanlon, the now-retired FBI agent who framed him in the first place.
Scanlon, who still has ties to the United States intelligence community, hasdiscovered that a Ukrainian crime organization is auctioning twelve nuclearwarheads to the highest bidder, but he can't convince the government thatthe sale isn't a hoax. The only way he can get his hands on the $200 millionnecessary to take the warheads off the market is to do something that goes against everything he stands for: steal it.
The choice Brandon is given is simple: help Scanlon and hope to live through it, or turn himself in and face the repercussions of his escape.
Suddenly, Brandon finds himself with only weeks to plan a Las Vegas heist that that hes been dreaming about for years, but has always thought was probably impossible. And to make matters worse, Scanlon insists on choosing his team personally. Led by the relentlessly intelligent and undeniably beautiful Catherine Juarez, not a single one of the former government operatives he picks has so much as shoplifted a pack of gum in their lives.
As the day of the heist approaches, Brandons carefully constructedplans begin to break down and he suspects that the elaborate double-cross hes devised to save himself could cost millions of lives. He finally has to ask himself just how far hes willing to be dragged into a game that he can only lose.
With this heart-stopping, all-too-real novel, Kyle Mills proves once againthat he is one of the freshest and most original thriller writers workingtoday.
