The Seventh Dynasty of Josh
November 11, 2012 - December 14, 2012
It’s tough now, our line of work. Too many guns. Too many computers. Too many yahoos.
But there’s still a place for craftsmanship, right? And that’s what I need. Craftsmanship.
Because I’m coming out of retirement for one last job, and if I’m going to pull off the biggest heist in history then I’ll need the best. I’ve been away for a while. I know this, and the market’s changed a lot since my day. But you - I hear you’re amongst the best, the crème de la crème.
So, okay; I’ll give you a shot. You’ve got a chance to convince me that you deserve a spot in my team. If not then we both walk away, and perhaps I find someone better. But if so… We could both end up very rich, very rich indeed.
Let’s see what you got, kid.
