About the Book

‘A superb, highly original thriller . . . I loved it.’ Peter James

‘Matches Grisham at his best.’ Sunday Times

Actor Tommy Jump isn’t getting the roles he once did. But as he prepares to give up the stage he gets a call from the FBI, with an offer too lucrative to refuse. For $300,000 all Tommy has to do is spend six months in prison, acting as a failed bank robber and befriend a fellow inmate who has information which could take down a Mexican drug cartel. But when the stakes are this high, does Tommy have what it takes to get away with this audacious last act?
