Max Holman knew the two minute rule: Get in, get the cash, and get out. But two minutes can be a lifetime. In one moment of weakness he botched a bank job and was sent away for years. Now released from prison, Max wants to reconcile with his estranged son, an L.A. cop. Instead he receives the devastating news that his son’s been gunned down in cold blood. To uncover the truth about the killing, Max aligns with Katherine Pollard, the ex-FBI agent who put him away—in a father’s search for justice and revenge.
