Kevin and Lauren and me. When Kevin called, offering me the Rome job, I wasn't keen. You never know what extras have been thrown in on his deals. My old buddy. I didn't have anything else to do. Lauren had walked out (and was probably staying with Kevin), I'd had to kill my dog and my drinking was way out of line. So I flung a few things in a bag -- clothes and a couple of my favourite Kierkegaards -- and flew to New York.
Tracy Bateman, maverick film editor, takes the job. The money's good. In Italy, Lauren turns up, fresh from Kevin, with a suitcase she can't open and things start happening. Tracy, always the planner in the old days on the drug runs, finds himself fixing Machiavellian sync-ups once more. But this is big and dangerous and it forces him across Europe and back to the States chasing a precise angry momentum right up to the pay-off at the bridge.
