Hollywood burgler Junior Bender finds himself caught in a revenge plot epic enough for the silver screen. Los Angeles's most talented burglar, Junior Bender, is in the middle of stealing one of the world's rarest stamps from a professional killer when his luck suddenly turns sour. It takes an unexpected assist to get him out alive, but his escape sets off a chain reaction of blackmail, strong-arming, and escalating crime. By the time Junior is forced to commit his third burglary of the week--in the impregnable fortress that's home to the ruthless studio mogul called King Maybe--he's beginning to wish he'd just let the killer take a crack at him.
