A million-dollar con gone wrong. A failed attempt at murder. A young girl living on the streets. In this con game, only the strongest survive.
Con artist Roxy Tanner just walked away with $2.6 million on her latest job, but left behind a dead body. Skip Cosgrove wants to help Roxy find out who killed her mark, but he has his own problems—a man the former criminologist once helped put behind bars is back for revenge. With the cops closing in on Roxy, and a killer on the hunt for Skip, the last thing they need is a gutsy street kid turning their lives upside down—until it happens. Now, all three must decide how far they will go to survive a killer’s con game.
What the pros say about Con Game
“A gripping fast-paced read, with characters you will want to see again and again!” — Deborah Crombie, New York Times Bestselling author of ”The Sound of Broken Glass”
“Once again author Terry Ambrose has given us an original tale with a unique and different set of characters, and a murder investigation that, while it doesn’t follow conventional guidelines, yet holds the reader spellbound until the last surprising roundup of victims and perps. And once again the reader comes away wanting more.” — Lois Santalo, Midwest Book Review
“Ambrose touches on high-finance malfeasance, adultery and drug dealing with the kind of snark that will remind readers of Elmore Leonard. Given their moral nuances, Roxy and Skip are entertaining anchors for a series, and the introduction of Lily brings the promise of further complications for their relationship. . . A solid second round of capers featuring this attractive, cynical couple.” — Kirkus Reviews
