Glen and Stan team up again in this exciting follow-up to The Big Get-Even

Two high-flying con men stumble upon a lone scientist and his half-genius, half-addlepated invention, which seems to promise a big payoff if they can dupe the right buyers. But infidelity, gangsters, foreign governments, and their own greed offer stumbling blocks galore.

Praise for The Big Get-Even:

“Raymond Chandler would envy some of Di Filippo’s similes and wisecracks…Storytelling artistry meets scam artistry and the lucky reader scores big.” —Michael Dirda, Pulitzer Prize—winning critic and Edgar Award—winning author

“Compulsively readable and spiked with wry wit. You cheer the motley characters every step of the way to the H-bomb climax…Raymond Chandler would love this book.” —Rudy Rucker, Philip K. Dick Award–winning author of the Ware Tetralogy

“An astonishingly accomplished, virtually seamless caper-suspense novel…I hope there will be more of these and that I will be present for at least some.” —Barry N. Malzberg

“[This]cocktail of classic noir blends a cast of sexy and larcenous guys and molls, a wittily suspenseful buildup, and a gasp-provoking payoff.” —Michael Bishop, author of Ancient of Days
