Overview

Former Wall Street whiz and current convict Mickey Steinberg is nearing the end of his three-year sentence at Yankton?the cushy country club prison where he's enjoyed celebrity status?and he's ready to get out and get back on top. He doesn't have the resources he once did, but he's already hatched a new plan to sell a forgery of a stolen Van Gogh painting through the shady underground art market. He and his new partner, the smooth-talking Paul Reece, have a mark in mind: the sleazy con-man art dealer who swooped in on Mickey's beloved ex-wife after he was locked up. But with his old partner, Jack Grass, hell-bent on revenge and his pre-prison life closed to him, it won't be easy.

As their plan becomes ever more complex, Mickey realizes he just wants to make good and make it out alive. A madcap heist with a shrewd insider's eye on the high-rollers and lowlifes that run New York City?a place where no man is too big to fail.
