This witty novel of a con man on the run, from the author of To Catch a Thief, “ends with a gratifying twist” (Publishers Weekly).
When a handsome swindler working the French Riviera meets a beautiful heiress on the beach at Cannes, sparks fly. But so do bullets—and soon he’s forced to flee the country with both the police and the heiress on his trail.
From the casinos of Monaco to the jungles of Brazil, from Tangier to Marrakech to Peru, the chase is on. And not even a veteran of Monte Carlo’s baccarat tables would dare to place odds on where it will end . . .
“A master hand at dangers and hair-raising near misses.” —The San Francisco Chronicle
“The pulp era may have been over, but Dodge was still writing like it was in full swing, peppering the story with snappy patter . . . Great fun.” —Booklist
