«I criminali non hanno amici. Hanno complici, fornitori, ricettatori, puttane, ex amanti, fiancheggiatori, spacciatori, collboratori, soci, vittime e capi, tutte persone capaci di tradire e delle quali non possono fidarsi.»
Uno dei gialli più gustosi degli ultimi mesi. Incentrato su una bellissima coppia di sconfitti. Un fantastico rapinatore di banche pentito di inarrivabile integrità morale e una agente federale dismessa ridotta ai minimi dai figli infanti là dove i criminali non ce l'hanno potuta. Mix difficilissimo quello tra il thriller e l'incontro sentimentale, per una volta riuscito.
Max Holman has just been released from prison after serving 10 years for a bank robbery. Max wants to make amends to the son he never took care of but discovered that he was shot the day before Max was due to be released. Max tries to make sense of the killings, especially when his son was a cop. He wanted to believe that his son was a good man, unlike him.
