Jodie Silver has money and prestige - she's a buyer for an import and export business handling luxury goods in the heart of San Fransisco. But underneath this polished exterior, Jodie has a darker, wilder side. She's an addictive thrill-seeker who gets a powerful rush for pocketing things that don't belong to her - jewellery, artefacts and works of art.

Skilled at concealing her double life, Jodie thinks she's unstoppable, but with hunky detective Nick Hudson on her tail, it's only a matter of time before the pussycat burglar meets her comeuppance.
