Summary
  • Gentleman/banker-robber Jack Foley is back in prison doing a thirty-year sentence after a week-long escape. Brought in by Karen Sisco, US marshal, who got her man after being abducted with the escapees, Jack and Karen have a thing for each other, and Karen arrests him only after a meaningful 'time'out' together. Jack is resigning himself to doing time, lots of it, and he seems to have a friendly and easy control over the hardened criminals he is imprisoned with. This easiness is enhanced in the minds of others by his fame as a bank robber. It is this ease which impresses Cuando Rey, a Cuban refugee and criminal who is doing time for murder. Cuando arranges to have Foley's sentence hugely reduced, but has favors aplenty to ask when they're both released. Cuando's wife, Dawn, is pretending to be saintly all the while (whilst quite the opposite) under the negligent eye of The Monk, a gay accountant similarly in thrall to Cuando. Foley is freed, and, as he fears, Cuando wants to use him on a job, just as his every move is being scrutinized by FBI detective Lou Adams. In an instant, though, Dawn has seduced him, and she has an agenda all of her own
  • Cuban con man Cundo Rey and gentleman bank robber Jack Foley are united in a scheme that involves the women in their lives and a beautiful psychic
