Publisher's Summary

A shrewd, darkly-funny, wildly unpredictable crime novel that marks the dazzling debut of Jack Bunker, a bold new voice in crime fiction.

A bankrupt lawyer and a greedy insurance adjuster concoct a personal injury scam involving a runaway grocery cart and recruit a half-wit golf course greenskeeper as their fall guy. But the plan goes horribly wrong, and as it spirals into a murderous fiasco, the grifters must deal with betrayals, shakedowns, bombs, and mobsters to avoid prison...or worse, an early grave in a Southern California landfill.

    Story
    "Entertaining Listen!!!"

    This story was so far fetched I was laughing out loud! The saying "Pigs get fat, Hogs get slaughtered" kept coming to mind. Some of the characters in this book seemed so far out there and crooked, while others were likable. I enjoyed all of the unexpected twists this book had. The ending was so good. The narrator did a fantastic job with the various characters. The author was new to me, while I have listened to other performances by the narrator. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

    Story
    "Entertaining Tale"

    I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review through Audiobook Boom!

    This was a very entertaining story of bad plans turned worse and people unable to see the error of their ways. Of course, it's dark humor, with elements of noir and double-cross, and it's actually pretty well done.

    I've had my eye on the publisher, Brash Books, and this is the second book I've had the opportunity to read or listen to (Koreatown was the first, which was also very good). I'm definitely going to find more from this imprint!

    Story
    "Tort Fraud and Penile Fracture Just Good Fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of True Grift to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the e print or paper and ink version. The audio book version is hilarious, irreverent and a darn good listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just to warn people, if politically incorrect bothers you, racial humor bothers you, then this is not for you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are many! The injury made me cringe! The humor made me laugh out loud and to be honest it made me cringe a bit too! Lol


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was unique, it made me laugh many times, I'm just a bit ashamed to admit! And above all, it was entertaining and fast moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Was I entertained? Yes, I was. A quick listen. Noir-ish. Low life lawyers.

    Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

    A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.

    "Incredible read !!"

    OOMMMGG!! Talk about a twisted web they weave! If you want twists, passion, suspense, drama, love, hate, angst, and above all humor.. then you HAVE to read it!!
    Twists & turns at every page! This book was more like a twisted web ..The characters were really strong which I like!
    You WONT be disappointed! That's my only complaint is there are so many stories & characters that it's a bit confusing at times!! Amazing job! I can't wait for the next one!

    "Just an OK book, at most."
    What did you like best about True Grift? What did you like least?

    It was actually kinda boring for most of its length, with a few rare good laughs in between. The writing is so basic. I lost interest after some time and couldn't be bothered to finish the book.
