Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Francis Meehan, a career thief staring at life without parole, is awaiting sentencing at the Manhattan Correctional Center when a man makes him an offer he could refuse. It seems the man from Washington represents the presidential re-election campaign, which is in need of a little professional help. So they "outsource" Meehan, in return for a walk from all pending criminal charges, of course. All he has to do is steal a compromising video tape of the President before the other side springs an "October Surprise." A shrewd burglar, Meehan bites, and shows just how easy Watergate would have been had they left it to the professionals.

Synopsis:

Facing life without parole, career thief Francis Meehan awaits sentencing in Manhattan when he's approached with an offer he can't refuse: all charges will be dropped if he steals an incriminating videotape that could cost the President of the United States his reelection.
