He's ready to go underground, but then Nina Stone reappears in his life.<CRLF><CRLF>Nina is a fellow heist professional and the estranged wife of an LA crime boss. Miles last saw her five years ago, when he was investigating her for bank robbery and looked the other way, for reasons he is still trying to figure out.

The stakes couldn't be higher, but Nina has an offer that could be lucrative. Maybe Miles can stick around a while longer and get the big payoff he's been waiting for?<CRLF><CRLF>But luck has a way of running out and soon Miles is in way over his head.
