Great Pretender Spoilers
The series revolves around an international group of expert swindlers and their enigmatic Robin Hood-esque leader, Laurent Thierry. The point of view character in the show is Makoto Edamura, who, at the beginning of the series, is a small-time crook in Japan. After he unsuccessfully tries to con Laurent and ends up getting conned himself, he becomes a member of Laurent’s crew. The other members of the tight-knit group are Abigail Jones, who, because of her ballet training, is extremely agile; Cynthia Moore, a seductress who has a theater background; Kudo, Edamura’s former boss and partner-in-crime; and Kim Si Won, a veteran con artist.
In the first case, the group takes on Eddie Cassano, a crooked Hollywood filmmaker and drug lord. They go against Sam Ibrahim, an exiled oil tycoon from one of the Arab countries, in the second case. Their target in case 3 is the prominent art critic James Coleman. In case 4, the antagonists are increasingly turning out to be Akemi Suzaku, the Chief Executive Officer of Suzaku Association, an organization that is involved in human trafficking, and Liu Xiao, the head of Shanghai mafia. In episode 17, Edamura discovers that his father is alive and currently working with the Shanghai mafia.
