Charming, sexy and sophisticated, Neal Caffrey is one of the world's greatest con artists. After escaping from prison - and getting caught by the man who put him there in the first place, Agent Peter Burke - Neal strikes a bargain: In exchange for his freedom, Neal will help the FBI catch the most elusive White Collar criminals in the country.
A no-nonsense federal agent in the FBI's White Collar Crime Unit, Peter Burke believes in earning success the old-fashioned way, with perseverance and hard work. It took him years of both, along with the steadfast support of his loving wife, Elizabeth, to finally catch elusive white-collar criminal Neal Caffrey. Despite his initial trepidations, Peter agreed to take the wily crook on as a partner. But when a crooked agent from the Office of Professional Responsibility, Garret Fowler, threatens to collapse his career and tear apart his family, Peter's faith in the system is rattled. Although he still trusts the Bureau, Peter finds himself increasingly willing to take cues from Neal and draw outside the lines in order to preserve justice.
The beautiful and steadfast wife of FBI agent Peter, Elizabeth Burke understands her husband's work ethic, and mirrors it in her own work as an event planner. Peter's stubbornness is offset by Elizabeth's ability to see both sides of a situation, and she often plays the role of her husband’s moral compass.
Neal Caffrey's most trusted friend and co-conspirator, Mozzie has deep ties to the criminal underworld and can get just about anything for Neal, from classified secrets to cutting edge technology. Mozzie's encyclopedic knowledge of cons and schemes, along with a wealth of shadowy connections, allow Neal to play on both sides of the law. With each case Mozzie's expertise helps solve, he further entrenches as an invaluable ally to Neal, but also a useful source for Peter Burke and the FBI.
