A hard-hitting tale from The Year’s Best Crime and Mystery Stories 2016 author Annie Reed.
Pickpocket Lenny Masterson lives by two rules: no working kids in packs, and never mess with anyone connected.
Good rules, especially for a small-time thief working a tough town like Las Vegas. But sometimes life throws a curveball so sweet, even a smart criminal like Lenny can’t help but swing for the fences.
