A beautiful fraudster gives a drifter a chance at an irresistible score

Jerry Forbes, on the run in Fort Lauderdale, is careful not to tell Marian Forsyth his real name. But Marian already knows his secrets. She’s been following him since Miami Beach, fascinated by this handsome drifter since the first time she heard his voice. Finally she tells him the truth: Together, they’re going to steal a fortune from a rich sap named Harris Chapman. The plan is simple—all they have to do is ask.

Marian chose Jerry because he could be Chapman’s double. With a little coaching, he’ll be able to walk into the rich man’s bank and take whatever he likes. But it’s not long before the plan gets complicated, and Jerry is smart enough to know that when a heist turns sour, it’s not the women who die.
