“The subtitle of the book, “A Heist Misadventure,” sums it up perfectly. The narrator, Nicky Marsh, is partners in a firm that’s nicknamed Swindler & Son. The nickname of the firm should give you a good idea of what they are — con men.
“It’s Christmas and life sucks for Nicky. He’s been mugged on his way home and finds his way to his apartment blocked by high-end police looking for him. That’s before the plot thickens.
“Over the course of only a couple of days, Nicky’s attempts to prove his innocence, get to the bottom of who framed him, and make things right involve him with a rogue’s gallery of great characters, improbable situations, and delightful vignettes.
“I really loved the humor of this book.” – Janet P. on Netgalley
