The Scam List

We rated this book:


The son of a con man currently in jail, Boone worries he’s becoming just like his dad. When he loses fifteen thousand dollars from his mom’s flea market business, he knows the only way to get that kind of cash quick is to open his dad’s book full of the best scams. He brings in friends from the flea market and his ex-girlfriend, Darby, to help. Darby, however, has rules. They can only con those who deserve it, like the owners of the competing karate studio, those who take advantage of kids online, and other equally offensive people. When Boone finds out that his mom has decided to sell Garbage Mountain, he knows he has to set up his biggest con yet…but he’s gonna need some help.

Sarcastic and unapologetically irreverent, Boone is every guy: a little rude, a little self-centered, but deep down he believes he’s a good guy. His views on life are brutally honest and his self-examination and enlightenment are to be applauded. The banter is quick and witty and his final con is one of utter genius. Fans of Jeff Strand will enjoy this and should pick up the The Con Artist Dates for more tales of Boone’s genius.
