Summary "Keep your cool. If you panic and reveal your true identity, you'll be in big trouble. Stay away from thugs "packing heat." These ruthless gangsters are armed and very dangerous. Step on it! As a wheelman, you'll have to drive a gateway car at top speed. Don't get too comfy. Some gangsters lead a life of luxury. Don't forget that their money has beeen stolen from honest folks" --Cover, p. 4.
