From the author of Get Shorty (now a major motion picture) and the man unanimously considered the greatest living crime writer comes a sizzling new novel about the lowlifes America can't get enough of.
Out of Sight opens with a bang: a prison break in South Florida that brings together federal marshal Karen Sisco, a knockout in her Chanel suit, and legendary bank robber, Jack Foley, Mr. Cool. Their relationship is at the heart of the plot, the fed tracking the fugitive, but with unexpected overtones: the fascination that each feels about the other. The trail leads to the heist of the year in Detroit, where Foley, the old pro bank robber, and Karen, who's known to cut corners, come up against today's most vicious kind of criminal, home invaders.

When Jack Foley, a career bank robber, surfaces after tunneling out of a medium-security penitentiary in Florida, he comes face to face with Karen Sisco, a beautiful federal marshal. Though the barrel of her shotgun is pointed right at his face, she doesn't shoot, and Foley's accomplice, Buddy, overpowers her and puts her in the trunk of a car. Foley gets in with her and the car takes off, the escapee seemingly home free. In the cramped darkness of the trunk, the criminal and marshal find they have much in common and by the time the car reaches its destination, the two have become infatuated with each other. After Karen manages to escape, she and Foley try to reconnect outside the confining roles of kidnapper and victim.From the Publisher:
