"Just when you think that you can't be surprised anymore, a writer like Wallace Stroby ups the ante."
---Laura Lippman, author of I'd Know You Anywhere

Crissa Stone is a career criminal. A complete pro, she never works too close to her New York City home, rarely signs on with the same crew, and never rushes a job. These are the rules that have kept her from getting caught, from doing time. They're the rules her mentor and lover taught her, rules he didn't follow as closely as he should've. Now he's up for parole, and Crissa needs to come up with some real money real fast to help grease the wheels.

Word is that there's an illegal card game set for less than a week from now. The take? As much as seven figures. Desperate, Crissa slaps a plan and a crew together.

It's robbery, not murder. But when one of her crew loses his cool and they have to abandon the plan, she catches the attention of Eddie the Saint. A hit man recently released from prison, Eddie is no less of a pro than Crissa, and he could use the work, not to mention all that money.

One of the most talented writers working in crime fiction today, Wallace Stroby has written a tight, propulsive story that will hold readers captive until well after all the crooks have fled the scene.

The first half was pretty good and engaging. It got rather predictable as the end neared. I skipped about half of the final 30 pages - not exactly a glowing endorsement of the resolution

This book was ok, there were points in the book that I just had to skip over as it was dull. Could be a good beach read though.
