And that chick who ripped them off in Mexico doesn't want to give up the gold. Plus the DiGiovanni family is probably still after them. And maybe the cops. This whole stealing the money and running thing is hard.

Even if they manage to get the money and get away, can they stay hidden? Cooper's sins have to catch up at some point. Will Reese and Ryan still be her salvation?

Justice is a long time coming, but finally the serene waters of the Red Sea give up the secret of a millennia-old lie. While surrendering to biblical wantonness with a film actress, sculptor Joanna Boleyn, discovers that righteousness can conceal its own depravity, that art tells more truth than scripture, and that challenging authority can be mortally dangerous.
