Collected edition of both series of the early 1990s television drama, including all 20 episodes. Clive Owen plays Stephen Crane, a young con-man out to make his fortune in Thatcher's Britain. Crane is offered a job by an old acquaintance to help an ailing car company and embezzles money from the bank where he works to fund it.

In the second series, after his release from prison, Crane returns to his real name of Derek Love, but finds that trouble is still following him around in the form of a protracted custody battle.
