On the surface, Michael Violet is a legitimate San Francisco car dealer. But appearances can be deceiving.
In reality, he's a talented pickpocket, lifting the keys to the city's most luxurious cars. He's kept his criminal life secret from his journalist brother, Jon, who's made a career out of exposing corruption. But when Jon is killed, Michael uses his talents to track down his brother's killer.
Driven by guilt and revenge, Michael finds himself forced into the role of the hero, whether he likes it or not. But turning from thief to hero isn't going to be easy...
