Opinion

From Library Staff

This story of a con man, his mother, and his girlfriend, and the ways in which they prey on each other features two three handed women for the ages!

In Los Angeles County a family of swindlers stab one another in the back. And then do it again. Brutal people, brutally dark writing.

Unsettling, but manageable. I avoided reading the end of this close to my bedtime, I'll admit. I was very satisfied overall.
