Publisher's Summary

A con man gets in too deep during a risky job on the French Riviera

Harvey Jordan is no ordinary thief. A few years ago, an identity-theft scheme left him destitute, his fortune stolen and his wife gone with it. After two years in the gutter, Harvey learned who ruined him and returned the favor, stealing back his money by taking over the crook’s identity. He didn’t recover his wife, but he did find a new career.

Now he travels the world among the fabulously wealthy, cozying up to them before he empties their bank accounts. Anonymity is his greatest asset, so when a casual seduction leaves him embroiled in a sensational divorce case, Harvey plans to escape by orchestrating the greatest swindle of his life, stealing the identity of the man whose wife Jordan seduced. As the reasons for his crime become more and more personal, and a love affair shatters his hard-boiled façade, this man without a name finds himself trapped in a con he cannot escape.

    "Good Story/Excellent Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a good story. Drew me in immediately, The only problem is that Harvey, the main character, is pompous, conceited and demanding, so much so that I began to tire of his ways. Harvey is British and a substantial part of the book deals with his relationships with two attorneys, one in NYC and the other in NC, and even the one in NYC is originally from NC. David Franklin does a superb job with the southern accent, the best I have ever encountered. The primary female character is also from NC gentry, and Franklin does extremely well with her voice and accent as well. Things get a little rough when three more southerners are added to the mix, requiring him to perform and differentiate between six characters from the South, each with a different version of the accent. However, had the narration not been as good as it was, I doubt I would have listened to the whole book. Harvey, also done, of course, by Franklin (British accent) was a bit of a pill in his personal relationships.

    On the whole, however, I recommend it.
