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.

Critic reviews

"A fast and funny chronicle of a seemingly simple scheme to scam an insurance company...its participants would be at home in any of Donald Westlake's Dortmunder novels. Harry Dyson, who presents the novel at an effectively breezy pace, slows down only near the end when payment for the crimes comes due with results that are as satisfactory as they are surprisingly moral." ( Mystery Scene Magazine)
"Jack Bunker's debut crime novel is the study of a surefire insurance scam that goes horribly and hilariously wrong. Reader Dyson reports on the action with a rich, almost comforting voice flexible enough to underline Edwards’s sarcastic, mean-spirited criticisms of his team while simultaneously exposing him for the arrogant bully he is. Dyson keeps it light and smart for much of the book, but has no problem turning tough when the game is almost done and blood is spilled." ( Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

get ready to lol.

I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator.
Jack Bunker has written a story that was a little out in left field and had me laughing out loud.
Harry Dyson was a good narrator, he kept the story line alive.
I feel that I can recommend this audio book to anyone who loves a good book.
