Grifter’s Game by Lawrence Block
DID HE WANT HER BADLY ENOUGH . . . TO KILL FOR HER?
As a con man, Joe Marlin was used to scoring easy cash off gullible women. But that was before he met Mona Brassard–and found himself holding a stolen stash of raw heroin. Now Joe’s got to pull off the most dangerous con of his career, one that will leave him either a killer . . . or a corpse.
No one but multiple Edgar Award winner Lawrence Block could tell this story of dangerous men and wicked women, of greed and desire and nail-biting suspense. It will grab you by the throat on the first page and won’t let go till the breathless, unforgettable climax.
