The Code

The Thieves' Code

A thief is bound by the Code to:

1. Forsake his relatives--mother, father, brothers, sisters…

2. Not have a family of his own—no wife, no children; this does not however, preclude him from having a lover.

3. Never, under any circumstances work, no matter how much difficulty this brings. Live only on means gleaned from thievery.

4. Help other thieves—both by moral and material support, utilizing the commune of thieves.

5. Keep secret information about the whereabouts of accomplices (i.e. dens, districts, hideouts, safe apartments, etc.).

6. In unavoidable situations (if a thief is under investigation) to take the blame for someone else's crime; this buys the other person time of freedom.

7. Demand a convocation of inquiry for the purpose of resolving disputes in the event of a conflict between oneself and other thieves or between thieves.

8. If necessary, participate in such inquiries.

9. Carry out the punishment of the offending thief as decided by the convocation.

10. Not resist carrying out the decision of punishing the offending thief who is found guilty, with punishment determined by the convocation.

11. Have good command of the thieves' jargon ("Fehnay").

12. Not gamble without being able to cover losses.

13. Teach the trade to young beginners.

14. Have, if possible, informants from the rank and file of thieves.

15. Not lose your reasoning ability when using alcohol.

16. Have nothing to do with the authorities (particularly with the ITU [Correctional Labor Authority]), not participate in public activities, nor join any community organizations.

17. Not take weapons from the hands of authorities; not serve in the military.

18. Make good on promises given to other thieves.


There was a complete media frenzy behind the bomb attack on Mother Russia and the Medlov compound. Outlets from across the nation stood outside of the gates of Dmitry's home discussing the murder of a young, female shopkeeper and the attempted assassination of a millionaire of questionable character with alleged ties to the Vory v Zakone by his crime boss brother, Ivan Medlov, who headed the Memphis Medlov Organized Crime Family.

Obviously, the media had it all wrong, which was good for the men who had survived the attack and for his son, who was now the head of the family, but it was not good for his most apparent and haunting dilemma.

For nearly 15 years, Dmitry avoided his name ever making one newspaper regarding his possible connections to the mafia, and now his face was splashed across CNN, MSNBC and Fox News along with newspapers nationwide. He had no choice. He had to leave.

Three months had passed and although the house repaired and the restaurant rebuilt, there were several undercover investigations underway by the MPD, FBI, ICE, DEA and the IRS. Dmitry was embattled, yet none of his worries outweighed the pain he felt for Royal.

He sat in the back of the limo as it escorted him now to the private airstrip, where he had made arrangements to fly to Prague to his new luxury villa that awaited him with a full staff and a newer life.

He also had purchased two large storefronts in the middle of Prague 1 district, where he had already started a new restaurant and an upscale clothing store called Royal Flush, just as he had promised her.

A staff had already been picked, and both would be open within the week. Besides, he had done everything that he could here. Dmitry's Closet and Mother Russia belonged to Anatoly now. There was nothing more to fix, no more reason to linger.

"What are you thinking about?" Royal asked, taking off her shades.

Dmitry put his hand on her knee and sighed. "You. This is big move so early in your recovery. I'm not sure that you even need to be out of bed."

"I'm ready." She rubbed her growing stomach. "I think we both are. This place is just a memory now. It's time to move and time for you to stop treating me like I'm made of glass." The diamonds sparkled from her neck. Dmitry had purchased a three-million dollar diamond necklace, designed specifically to cover the large knife mark that Ivan had left when he tried to claim her life.

"Prague is a good change. A place where no one knows me or you," she said confidently. "I can feel it. Everything is going to be fine."

Dmitry raised his
