High Stakes Banner

A prestigious painting has gone missing from a London gallery.
Authorities suspect it's an inside job. They're not wrong.


Retired thief Cas King is back for one reason only- revenge. But between a missing thief syndicate, rusty skills, a shifty buyer,  and the new threat of someone replacing him in the criminal underworld, he needs to do a lot more than that to prove his worth.
