A novel about family, adventure, and the art of the con from acclaimed crime writer Richard Lange.
Randall Petty is down on his luck. He hasn´t run a successful con in years, and now he´s working for his dead best friend´s brat of a son, living out of a hotel and scamming the elderly. He hasn´t spoken to his daughter Sam in years and he´s never met his grandchild. At 55, Petty has begun to worry that this is it. Maybe his luck has finally run out.
When an old friend shows up out of the blue with the craziest, most ridiculous scheme to get his hands on five million dollars, Petty is quick to write him off. But the brat he´s working for is just getting more demanding. And the money is in Los Angeles - where his daughter lives. If he could just get some of that money, he´d finally be able to quit the con game for good and "retire" in peace.
Accompanied by a charming prostitute - who goes by Tinafey - on the run from her violent ex, Petty heads to L.A. But little do they know that someone is tailing them, and they´re in for the ride of their lives.
