Publishers Weekly (starred review) raves "Crusie charms with her brisk, edgy style..." Kirkus (starred review) of Crusie's latest, New York Times bestselling Fast Women states "Move over, Susan Isaacs. Crusie is just as smart and sassy about the things a woman has to do to make love work, and a lot funnier to boot." Reformed art forger Tilda Goodnight reluctantly joins forces with semi-reformed con man Davy Dempsey to steal a dubious painting and several million embezzled dollars from a lethal widow named Clea who has targeted a mild-mannered art collector as her next dearly departed. Complications include her sister, the female impersonator; his best friend, the reformed cat burglar; a recidivist embezzler named Rabbit; a hit man, some lousy sex, and a juke box. Trouble ensues...
Davy Dempsey is, to put it mildly, a con artist. When he breaks into an old girlfriend's place to steal some cash, he encounters the woman who may be his soul mate: Tilda Goodnight, a painter who is there to steal back one of her embarrassing early works. As Davy gets involved with not only Tilda but her charmingly eccentric family, he finds himself in the midst of a bigger, crazier scam than he ever bargained for. And all this happens in Columbus, Ohio!
