When Sloane, an unsuccessful painter but a successful forger, is released from prison after taking part in a high-profile art scam, he finds a letter from a woman with whom he had a passionate affair in his youth. On her death bed she tells him that years ago she gave birth to a daughter-his daughter-Connie, from whom she has since become estranged. She implores Sloane to find her and make peace between them.

And the more Delaney feels cornered and under pressure, the more unpredictable and dangerous he becomes...
