Baker & Taylor Imprisoned for a robbery he did not actually commit, talented career thief Brandon Vale is broken out of prison against his will by Richard Scanlon, the former FBI agent who framed Vale and wants his help in preventing a Ukranian crime organization from auctioning off nuclear warheads. By the author of Rising Phoenix. Reprint.
Brandon Vale is the best burglar in the business. Or was, since he was framed for a botched job that landed him in prison. But one night he's broken out by Richard Scanlon, the now-retired FBI agent who put him there in the first place.
Scanlon has uncovered a plot involving a Ukrainian crime organization and the auction of a dozen nuclear warheads. But he can't convince the government that the $200-million sale isn't a hoax. So he must find a way to take care of business himself--with Brandon's help.
Now it's up to Brandon to pull off a Las Vegas heist that will help Scanlon cough up the cash and get the warheads off the market. With millions of lives in the balance, and dirty deeds and double-crosses in the works, it all depends on one man to do the one thing he knows best: Beat the enemy at its own game.
