A Legitimate Businessman
by Dale M. Nelson
Frank Fischer escaped Silicon Valley to become a wine maker, but that’s not the only thing he’s running from. Frank is really Jack Burdette, a highly successful thief and someone the authorities aren’t sure even exists.
Jack is lying low in his carefully crafted alternate identity when his fixer pitches him on a job–a jewelry exhibition on the French Riviera worth eighty million dollars and almost no security. Too good to be true, Jack passes. But when the winery’s accountant disappears with ten million dollars, Jack’s business, his security and his new life could disappear with it. Now, the only chance Jack has to save his winery and his way into civilian life, is the Carlton Job.
There’s just one problem. Jack is not the only one in on the score. But with eighty million–and his life–at stake, Jack’s not going to let a little thing like competition get in the way. If he’s going to pull it off he will have to outsmart the FBI, a gang of Serbian jewel thieves, an ex-con with a grudge, his old crew and an Israeli diamond mogul. Not to mention the fiery winemaker that Jack, or rather Frank, is in love with. The clock is ticking and he’s got to pull off the Carlton Job before his two lives come face to face.
