A Legitimate Businessman
by Dale M. Nelson
Meet Frank Fischer, a retired Silicon Valley entrepreneur turned winemaker. There’s just one thing…Frank Fischer is really “Gentleman” Jack Burdette an international jewel thief.
Jack’s mentor and fixer pitches him on the biggest heist either has ever seen—a jewelry exhibition in the French Riviera worth eighty million dollars and almost no security. Too good to be true, Jack passes. But when his accountant disappears with ten million dollars, Jack’s business, his security and his new life could disappear with it. Knowing he can’t turn to the police, Jack’s only option to get back the money he’s lost is to steal it.
The clock starts when Jack learns he’s no longer the only one in on the score. But with eighty million—and his life—at stake, he’s not going to let a little thing like competition get in the way. But if he’s going to pull off the most daring heist in history, Jack will have to stay one step ahead of the FBI, a gang of Serbian jewel thieves, his old crew and a dangerous Israeli diamond mogul. Not to mention the fiery winemaker that Jack, or rather Frank, is in love with. Can this thief pull off the heist of a lifetime before his two lives come face to face?
