Synopsis

Wily Miami burglar Danny Sullivan, born with the extreme gene but increasingly covered by the darkness of fate's lengthening shadow, determines to conclude his parlous career by heisting a priceless coin collection, enabling him to retire and marry his sweetly ingenuous fiancée, while still resolutely hugging his secret. The target, an enigmatic German millionaire, as reclusive as a badger, sits ensconced in his palatial Palm Beach estate, his big double-door Heidelberg safe bulging with promises – cash, gold, diamonds, emeralds, pearls and mysterious amber artifacts – and a crushingly heavy burden of cloaked, malevolent secrets … But Danny’s actions unleash a tsunami of unforeseen consequences encompassing the spectrum of the human condition – love, death, betrayal, greed, altruism, revenge – while illuminating a constellation of singular characters – robbers, smugglers, killers, crooked cops and corrupt lawyers - and painting a poignant portrait of a complex man doomed by his own flaws ….With his dreams inexplicably cratered and his life circling the drain Danny wrestles with his own warring impulses, clutching at his final chance for redemption. A mounting cascade of double-crosses, murders, ambushes and betrayals, simmering in an aspic of international intrigue, inexorably leads to the final denouement, one resonating with life’s timeless themes.
