Book Description

They say your life flashes before your eyes right before you die. Finnick Hollins might be finding that out the hard way. With a gun pointed at the back of his head, he retraces his life starting as a child running cons with his father and ending in a stranger's house with a dead body at his feet and the chilling feel of cold steel pressed to his skull.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Father, Like Son 25 Jan. 2014
By Pope Mel - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Never buy something you can steal. My father used to tell me that all the time."

Crime is truly a family affair for Finnick Hollins (NOT Phil Collins!) He was raised in a den of thieves; taught to con, cheat and steal from an early age, and boy, does he ever make his daddy proud.

Finn enjoys a life of leisure, taking, and sometimes borrowing, what he needs from neighbors...only if they're NOT home, of course. Groceries, clothing, DVDs are all his for the taking, and the owners never seem to miss a few cans of soda or a t-shirt or two. But Finn is destined for bigger scams and before long his capers are making the papers, and he's been assigned a really lame nickname.

This was a fun read and the only reason it gets four instead of five stars is because the main character/narrator's astonishing arrogance annoyed the hell out of me. (If I want to hear a story from someone who thinks they're better than everyone else, I'll phone up my mother-on-law...)

Fieldgrove provides detailed instructions for breaking and entering, lock picking and starting a car without keys. He also describes the framework of several cons. If you're tempted to try one, apparently Mormons are extra gullible. (There was even one a couple years ago who thought he could be President.)

"My dad said scamming Mormons was easier than falling off a log.
...they'd be wise to remove that extra M in Mormon."

4.0 out of 5 stars What A Childhood! 13 Feb. 2014
By B. K. Probst - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really, really like this book....the author knows his craft! The father-son relationship is carefully drawn. Too bad more children in real life aren't raised with the love and affection shown this child. But, raised to put 'cons' as the main focus in life is strange, but sure makes for a good book! It is very well written and makes enjoyable reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious book that will capture your attention from the very start!! 30 Nov. 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
A hilarious book that will capture your attention from the very start!! The first person point of view makes you wonder if Mr. Fieldgrove and Finnick might in fact be one and the same as far as personality goes! lol

Finnick and his father Alex are the ultimate old school con men. Con men with a code. Con men with ethics, if you will.... Not all con men have those standards!

When Finnick and his father have to face a problem that resurfaces from their past, he takes you back to where it all began. Conning people runs in his blood. A family trait that has been passed down for generations. At an early age Finnick pulls his own con while going door to door for a school fundraiser. From there his father starts to teach him the ropes. Showing Finnick that stealing isn't just about taking stuff, but about doing it wisely. Take your time, study your surroundings and get to know your mark. But if you're going to take on a partner, you better stick with family. Some people won't think like you and you could end up with a bullet through your skull!

Soon after finally finding a woman who holds his interest, one that he might actually be falling in love with, strange things begin to happen. Suddenly a detective is at their door, and Finnick feels like he is being watched. Can this relationship work out if he can't tell her who and what he really is? Or will the con man be the one who gets conned? (DUUUN DUN DUUUUUN)

This book was such a well written and funny story, that you really hope there will be more, turning this into a "must read" series! I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a laugh at every turn!!

Funny, engaging characters, fast paced plot... What more could you ask for? Our anti-hero is witty and informative, and will have you cheering him on in his life of crime. I immediately started reading another one of the author's books. Highly recommended.
