about this item

"Bad luck," Los Angeles burglar Junior Bender's mentor Herbie Mott once told him, "comes in on the wind." Junior recalls these words just as the wind kicks up to slam the side of the Brentwood mansion he's robbing. Inside, Junior's just gotten his hands on one of the world's rarest stamps, which he's been sent to steal from a man whose name is synonymous with violence. The burglary goes terrifically wrong, and the botched theft sets the tone for a very windy week.A week when Junior's fence, Stinky, goes on the run. When an old acquaintance hires a killer to remove Junior permanently from the map. When Junior's relationship with his girlfriend, Ronnie Bigelow, falls apart at the time he needs her most, and his teenage daughter, Rina, is caught in a betrayal of Renaissance proportions. And, finally, when Junior is forced to break into the house of the most powerful man in Hollywood, the shadowy, widely feared studio mogul called King Maybe.To get out of that house alive, Junior will need to use everything he's learned, plus a few skills knows he doesn't possess. And he needs that damned wind to die down.
