Caffrey is a convicted con artist, having [[GreatEscape broken out of jail]] three months before his sentence of four years was completed. He's quickly caught by Burke (who was responsible for catching him in the first place) and is in for another four year stay, but manages to be released to the FBI (Under Burke's supervision and being tagged with a [[TrackingDevice GPS-tracking anklet]]) to assist with catching some of the most ruthless white collar criminals in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, which also gives him an opportunity to pursue his lost girlfriend, Kate, on the side.

Other important characters include Elizabeth Burke (Tiffani Thiessen), Peter's loving and devoted wife, with whom he has [[HappilyMarried a wonderful relationship]]; Mozzie (Willie Garson), Neal's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} lovably eccentric]] partner in crime; and the members of Peter's White Collar Crime Unit, including Clinton Jones (Sharif Atkins) and Diana Barrigan (Creator/MarshaTomason).

Added DiffLines:

* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: A metaphorical one. When Mozzie's true name of [[spoiler:Theodore Williams]] is revealed and on the FBI radar, he finds he needs to kill off this identity. Diana, who was 8 months pregnant at the time, decided to name her baby after him [[spoiler:as a secret thank you for Mozzie helping in her delivery]]. Neal lampshades this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Mozzie [[spoiler: sells the Degas painting to finance a bounty on Matthew Keller for murdering a fence he was friendly with, and to stop Keller from coming after Neil and their treasure.]] It isn't just the act itself; weird, quirky little Mozzie is chillingly calm as he [[spoiler: arranges with an intermediary for a CarnivalOfKillers to go after Keller.]] Turns out that if you ''really'' anger Mozzie, he's more dangerous than Neil...

Added DiffLines:

* CopsNeedTheVigilante: The series plays with this, as the FBI ''know'' the crook-of-the-week is operating out of a warehouse, but they do not have a warrant. So convicted felon Neil Caffrey, who works as a consultant, simply runs to the warehouse - where the FBI then tracks him using his monitoring bracelet, and can use probable cause to go inside. This follows under the heading of "an agent of the police can't do what the cops can't do".
