When he kicked off, Florida mob boss Frank DiCilia left his gorgeous widow, Karen, everything, but with strings attached. She loses the millions, the cars, the palatial Gold Coast mansion if she ever gets involved with another man. And there's a crazy cowboy-wannabe thug named Roland who's acting as Frank's eyes beyond the grave, making sure Karen doesn't dally, with serious muscle, if necessary.
But now Cal Maguire's come into the picture. A sexy, street-smart Detroit ex-con, Cal's got a line and a scam for every occasion. And he's got the perfect plan for getting Karen DiCilia her money and her freedom...if it doesn't get them both killed first.

The characters were typical Elmore Lenorad people - the underbelly of society. they're funny, clever and always ready to con a con.
The entire story was memorable. Elmore Leonard had "the gift."
I enjoyed so many stories narrated by Frank Muller. He did narrations for John Grisham, Stephen King, Elmore Leonard and many others. All his performances were great. He was the best of the best.
the end. The whole story was great and then - the end. It just hung there.
Tell us about yourself!
Plotting was far weaker in this one than so many of the other books he has written. a disappointment
