Adrian Lester as Mickey Stone

Mickey Stone (Adrian Lester)

"He's in a class all his own. He's had every fraud office in the country jumping through hoops for twenty years but never been convicted."

  • Mickey's the former leader of the team, and master of the long con.

  • Very ambitious, he's gone off to Australia to help pull off a major con, leaving his protégé Danny to stake his claim to lead the gang.

  • Held in high esteem. Described by the police as 'in a class of his own'. He's a prize catch for every fraud squad in the country!

  • Fiercely intelligent and a perfectionist.

  • But don't think he's not tough. Two years in prison for GBH on his wife's new boyfriend is unfortunately etched on his CV.

  • He has everything he could possibly want - apart from the woman he loves.

  • The rumour is that he and Stacie were once involved.

  • He only targets the greedy, morally corrupt and those who thoroughly deserve it.
