Storyline

When Nathan Ford, a former insurance company investigator, is approached by a man asking him to help retrieve some stolen property, he is dubious. When he finds out that the job requires him to supervise and maintain control of three known thieves that he himself caught in the course of his insurance investigations, he's more than dubious. However, the job offers him the opportunity to get some of his own back from the insurance company that allowed his son to die, so he takes it despite his misgivings. When his doubts prove to be well-founded, he persuades his reluctant colleagues to unite once more to reach a more "equitable" settlement. Written by Eideann

Parker mentions that the guards had been "ganked" after Elliott knocked them out. "Gank" is a slang combination term for "gang kill", so since the guards were not killed, this use was inaccurate. See more »
