One long con could be John Hayden’s ticket to financial freedom—or to the slammer

John Hayden’s a confidence man gone square. He’s done some hard time and he’s not looking back. That is until an old acquaintance presents a long con he can’t resist. The beautiful broad who’s working the inside of this job is just a perk as John and his fellow cons work a deal that could mean the greatest long con of all: financial freedom. Will the perfect setup set John up for life, or will he end up behind bars? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
