I just finished the paperback edition of King Con, and I really got a kick out of the con artist lifestyle. Too harrowing for me, though. But hearing about scams that work and why they work was fascinating. Sure, the story was light but I sure kept reading and didn't notice the time passing.

I loved this book. If you have not read it run and get it!!!!

King Con wasn't bad, but I loved "Final Victim". It kept me right on the edge of my seat. A spine tingling read.

I am reading The Tin Collectors and recommend it highly. The first half zooms, there is half a page where you can catch your breath as you think, "OK, it's going to be OK now." Then it takes off again. All of the behind the scenes police work and jargon is fresh and interesting.

Does anyone out there know which is Stephen J. Cannell's very FIRST book was? No one seems to know. Not even the library. This would be very appreciative.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

It appears that The Plan, released in 1995 was the first book.

Runaway Heart:

From the Publisher

"What would modern war be like if the front-line foot soldiers were not our sons and daughters, but genetically engineered animals with superhuman strength and speed, and just enough intelligence to understand commands and follow them blindly?" "This is exactly the weapon being developed at a base in the desert by a top-secret government agency."

"Attorney Herman Strockmire, a rumpled man with a very big but defective heart, champion of lost legal causes and the infuriating nemesis of giant corporate polluters, becomes involved when one of his employees is literally torn limb from limb by one of the experimental prototypes."

"At great personal risk, Herman, his beautiful daughter and law partner, Susan, and ex-LAPD detective Jack Wirta ignore all threats and plunge headlong into harm's way, finding themselves involved in a nightmare beyond anyone's wildest imagination." This science exists today. The future is now.

I have read all of the Shane Scully books and highly recommend them.
