From the internationally #1 bestselling novelist comes a tale of small time criminals on a new grift that might cost them everything.
Peppard and Jarman have a new grift that seems simple enough: Go to the airport. Imitate a hired driver by copying a name that they see in the crowd. Collect the passenger before the real drive does, take him to a secluded area and rob them. It seems like a simple plan to make some quick cash for these two amateurs—that is, until they finally meet a pro.
