Thief focuses on Nick Atwater, a professional thief who has reached a critical turning point in his life. He thought he had everything he could have ever wanted; a nice house, a good business selling classic cars, a beautiful wife (who knows nothing of his criminal history) and the flexibility to pull off the occasional score around the country. However, when his wife dies in a tragic car accident, Nick decides that maintaining the illusion of the straight, clean, middle class life is no longer worth the effort. There’s only one problem – Tammi, Nick’s 14-year-old stepdaughter. When one of Nick’s crew shows up at his house the night of his wife’s death, brandishing a gun, Tammi witnesses Nick shoot the intruder. With barely enough time to digest the tragic death of her mother, Tammi is forced to question her trust – and safety – with Nick, a virtual stranger who has become her sole parent.
