All the hustler has to do is what he does best: lie, cheat, fake, and stealand watch both the money and the girl fall into his lap.Trouble is, the hustler has pulled every con in the book, and he instinctively knows this: The blonde cant just be a beautiful blonde, the score cant just be a score, and the big bad husband has to have an angle of his own. Most of all, Kip Largo has serious suspicions about himself. After all, hes just gotten out of prison and isnt interested in going back.But for a man who was born the son of a grifter and now lives in a Palo Alto apartment whose carpeting was last changed when Eisenhower was president, the blonde in the bar bit is starting to look too good to pass up. Then, as in any good con, the pot gets sweetenedand the incentives risewhen Kips son shows up with a story about a big gambling debt to the Russian mob. Now Kip is going all-in, doubts and all. Hell call in old favors from everyone from a porn princess to a slightly bent computer nerd. All because that blonde, her husbands billions, and a strange racket called fatherhood have convinced Kip that he might just be smart, skilled, and lucky enough to walk away with a fortune. Or not.
