Iceberg Slim, best-selling author of Pimp and Trick Baby, brings us yet another riveting classic. LongWhite Con tells the story of the most incredible con man ever to have risen.
Picking up where TrickBaby left off, we dive into the world of Johnny O'Brien, better known as White Folks. After learning to use his fair skin to his advantage to rise to the top of the Chicago con game, Folks is back for the big money and the big stakes of the long con.
Following the death of his partner and mentor, Blue, Folks takes off for Canada. Having honed his skills and polished his acting, Johnny is done cheating marks out of small money. With a gang of grifters working with him - High Pockets Kate, High Ass Marvel, and the Vicksburg Kid among them - Folks is after the biggest score of his life.

Robert Becks' ability to take you inside the life of his characters in the story is amazing. This book is part two of White Folks.
This book was very good because it explorers the concept of race and the way it affects your outlook in life. The character path was developed due to his physical appearance as a white man but yet not excepted because he was black . Limited the opportunities limited direction.
