Hide in plain sight: that's master thief Misha Kif's strategy for survival. Keeping her true identity as a genetically altered Synth secret with a bounty on her head from everyone in the Hundred Worlds except her partner in life and partner in crime, Jerrold McKell. After all, what's life but risk, right?
Smuggler-thief Jerrold McKell knew how to work alone. And then Misha Kif entered his life and turned it upside down. But when their work styles and attitudes conflict, can they live together on a small space cruiser? More to the point, can they work together to offload a priceless painting, con a cartel boss, and rescue a man everyone believed long-dead?
