Wyatt, professional hold-up man, is back in another tight, remorseless thriller. On the run after the payroll heist that went horribly wrong in Paydirt, wanted by the police and contract hitmen, he discovers that a shadowy third player has joined the hunt. Enter Stolle. Stolle specialises in finding people who don't want to be found. But who is his Brisbane client? Is this a trap Wyatt's walking into? And what of the score itself, the suburban bank with two million in the vault? It looks easy enough - if you don't count a bank manager who owes favours to the wrong people, a gun-running pilot, grifters, bent cops and punks with ambition... There's death in a deal like that.
