A conman hiding out in Atlantic City lays his life on the line for a shot at a $250,000 payoff Mona has a millionaire husband, a million-dollar figure, and hair that's blonde to the roots. She's just what Leonard K. Blake is looking for. Of course, that's not his real name. Nor is it David Gavilan—that's the one he used in Philly, before he skipped out on a $600 hotel bill and jumped a train to Atlantic City. He doesn't have a name or a profession, but he's got a knack for storytelling and knows just what Mona needs to hear. He also has a pair of stolen suitcases that he grabbed at the train station. They happen to contain a brick of pure heroin—enough to make him dead or make him rich—and they happen to belong to Mona's husband. As if a good-looking blonde wasn't trouble enough.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
