Publisher's Summary

Raised in a world of flimflams, come-ons and con-jobs, Beano Bates has done so well he's earned a spot on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List. But his lucky streak vanishes after a card game in which he scams a cool eighty grand from a notorious Mafia don - who retaliates by having Beano nearly beaten to death.
For the first time in his legendary career, Beano wants more than a big score - he wants justice. Aided by a beautiful, no-nonsense female prosecutor and a legion of crafty cousins who are all accomplished grifters, Beano, the king of the cons, puts together the ultimate swindle - a well-planned sting of strategy, skill and deception. And in this game, winner takes all!

I absolutely love this story

I read the book when I was younger and it's one of my favorites. I bought the audible version a few days ago and was concerned that the abridged version would somehow be not as good. But when I saw that mr Cannell narrated his own book I realized that he would do it justice. This story is one of those little known ones that you may find nowadays In the dollar bin somewhere but it should not be overlooked. I absolutely love the story. If you have even the smallest interest in this story then please take it from me. It is absolutely worth the money.
