FOR THE GRIFTER’S DAUGHTER, NOT WANTING TO SCAM SOMEBODY IS NEW. SHE’LL GET OVER IT.
Notorious but lovable con artist Dani Silver—giving in to pressure from her clean-living sweetie—has taken a vow never to cheat an honest mark. Still… these three gripping thrillers demonstrate that there’s no shortage of dishonest marks out there, and when her favorite brother’s life is at stake, Dani at her most devious goes after the responsible parties with hellfire.
Author Duane Lindsay’s wit and endlessly devious imagination, complete with his trademark twists and turns keep the reader on a rollercoaster of danger and hilarity. This delectable three-volume set will delight fans of Donald Westlake, Laurence Block, Leverage, Good Girls, and all Ocean’s Eleven movies.
The Truth Lies (Book 4)After seeing something he shouldn’t have, Dani’s favorite brother, everybody’s favorite person and that rare thing, an honest man, has been framed as a drug dealer, given a life sentence, and tossed into solitary confinement to force him into turning over the proof of the crime he witnessed. Dani assembles her team to bust him out of jail, clear his name, and somehow make a little cash – because jailbreaks don’t come cheap.
High Spirits (Book 5)Dani gets a tip about a million-dollar bottle of whiskey whose ownership is…complicated. It has been appropriated from the original collectors, who would pay a handsome ransom—if not full price—to get it back. At the cost of a mere $20,000, Dani hires the finest criminal artists money can buy, counterfeits the distinctive bottle, and fills it with supermarket booze, knowing it’ll never be opened. There’s only one wrinkle—the original collectors are “America’s sweethearts”, so Dani’ll just have to dig up all their dirty little secrets to qualify them for the scam.
Scavenger Hunt (Book 6)Dani’s vow never to scam an honest person is put to its most stringent test when the mark and his lovely fiancée turn out to be just so young, vulnerable, and downright sweet that the whole gang balks at scamming them. So how are they supposed to turn a profit on this one?It seems hopeless until author Lindsay works his comic magic, serving up another rollicking comeuppance for a bad guy who really needs ruining.
