Before you can say hallelujah, Dillon’s personal savior materializes—fabulously shirtless and smoking a French cigarette. Perpetually on the lam, Uncle Max needs a place to hang—and hide—out for a while. But the flamboyant Francophile can’t seem to elude a colorful mini-entourage that includes his parole officer, Meredith; his sexy mountaineer boyfriend, Serge; and fellow con artist and antiques dealer Jane Nguyen. Much to Dillon’s amazement, loathsome Lana isn’t all he has in common with the dashing family black sheep.
Sprung from the proverbial closet at last, Dillon finds himself under Max’s supervision for the summer. This entails Hitchcock films, Balzac novels, and a crash course in shoplifting, from which Dillon swiftly graduates to insurance fraud and art heists. Now, as Max and Jane’s devoted sidekick, he’s the third member of the notorious “Balzac Bunch,” who specialize in befriending blue-haired, blue-blooded bridge players—and then relieving them of their priceless antiques.
Too quickly, sultry July gives way to steamy August, and the heat is on in more ways than one. Now the cops are closing in, and only two things are certain: that autumn and Max’s departure are imminent—and that for Dillon, nothing will ever be the same again.
