An ex con, an ex nun and an ex cop form an unlikely dreamteam of bandits in this enthralling tale from the grandmaster of American crime fiction. Reformed jewel thief Jack Delaney was going straight - until he met sexy ex nun Lucy Nichols.
Jack's in the funeral business and when he's sent to collect a body from a leper hospital, he finds it in Sister Lucy's care - and very much alive. Lucy's on a goodwill mission, hoping to smuggle the 'deceased' away from her dangerous ex, a Nicaraguan colonel with guns and goons aplenty. And it just so happens the colonel's also got several million dollars that could aid Lucy's quest to help mankind.
With a crazy plan in hand and ex cop Roy Hicks on board, they plot to rob the colonel's coffers, and they're sure to make out like bandits - if they live that long...
