'Mr Gores writes some of the hardest, smoothest, most lucid prose in the field' New York Times Book Review

On a Hollywood studio lot, a dancing bear - a Gypsy in a fur suit - does a little sly pickpocketing. In San Francisco, Daniel Kearny Associates are waging a campaign to repossess twenty-seven classic cars from people who are creatively determined to keep them. And in a fortress in the Big Sur wilderness, a rich man vows to steal a collectors' item. Soon the bear, DKA and the millionaire entangle in a twisted plot of betrayal and murder.

When the dancing bear is killed, the police start searching for his beautiful wife, Yana. But Yana is eluding everyone - DKA included - and working a grift of her own.

Meanwhile a helicopter is headed for Big Sur, carrying the greatest scam of all.
