Grift Sense

by James Swain

A page-turning read. The author is a gambling expert and professional magician and it shows! Witty dialogue, and lots of interesting inside information about scams and confidence tricks. First in a series - I'm going to read on....


Nola knew damn well what his name was. Frank Allen Fontaine, aged forty-four, divorced, no kids, star salesman for a computer outfit out of Poughkeepsie, no criminal record. Once he'd started winning, security had called the Mirage, where he was staying, and gotten his credit card number. Within minutes, the results of a complete financial and personal check were spitting out of a fax machine.
"He's a choirboy", Wily had told Nola during her break. "Mr Clean."
