From the bestselling author of GET SHORTY and JACKIE BROWN.
Black Ordell Robbie and white Louis Gara have lots in common - time in the same gaol, convictions for auto theft and a grand plan.
They're going to snatch the wife of a Detroit developer and collect some easy ransom money. At least that's what they think...
What they haven't figured on is the fact that the husband has a secret mistress and has absolutely no desire to get his wife back.
So, now it's time for Plan B. With the help of one seriously ticked off housewife they are going to take the scumbag for everything he's got...
