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.
