A Long Con Adventure
Once upon a time in Rome, Felix Salinger got caught picking his first pocket and Danny Mitchell saved his bacon. The two of them were inseparable… until they weren’t.
Twenty years after that first meeting, Danny returns to Chicago, the city he shared with Felix and their perfect, secret family, to save him again. Felix’s news network—the business that broke them apart—is under fire from an unscrupulous employee pointing the finger at Felix. An official investigation could topple their house of cards. The only way to prove Felix is innocent is to pull off their biggest con yet.
But though Felix still has the gift of grift, his reunion with Danny is bittersweet. Their ten-year separation left holes in their hearts that no amount of stolen property can fill. A green crew of young thieves looks to them for guidance as they negotiate old jewels and new threats to pull off the perfect heist—but the hardest job is proving that love is the only thing of value they’ve ever had.
A Fantastic Start to a new series
Mastermind by Amy Lane was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
The love story and a con has brought together two men who lost one another for 10 years. Felix, a cable network CEO, has been accused of harassment and has been working to get his reputation and his company back. With the help of his son Josh and his long lost love Danny he can have his family and his life whole again. I absolutely loved this book. The dynamic between Felix, Danny & Julia is beautiful and full of love as well as sadness for the missing 10 years. It was intriguing, fun, and the art history was just lovely. I enjoyed every minute I read it and didn’t want to put it down.
