Publishers description: A fortune in diamonds is missing and everyone, including the FBI and an unknown killer, is after them. Theyre also after The Kid, the professional who picked the pocket of the man last seen carrying the diamonds. Kid didnt get the diamonds, he didnt even know about them—but hes finding that story hard to sell. His world spirals out of control as everyone he knows becomes either a suspect or the victim of a killer who won't stop until he gets the jewels back.
Setting: San Francisco
