Summary Edit

Mickey’s found the ultimate mark in multi-millionaire businessman Madani Wasem (Abhin Galeya), who is ripe for a stock market scam. The stakes are higher than usual as Wasem is extremely dangerous and the kind of mark they usually avoid.

Mickey has his own reasons for taking the risk - he’s tired of grifting and is ready for retirement. The others are shocked but the prospect of a £10million jackpot is too good to turn down. There is a surprise in store when Wasem’s broker turns out to be Stacie Monroe (played by Jaime Murray).

She’s a useful insider but, when Wasem instructs his enforcer to kill Mickey after the deal is done, the very real prospect of death looms large over the gang. It’s the end of the road for Mickey and the gang but will they go out in a shower of money or a hail of bullets?
