A shrewd, darkly-funny, wildly unpredictable crime novel that evokes the very best of Elmore Leonard, John Grisham, and Carl Hiaasen
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.
“If crime paid, they say, it would attract smarter criminals. Jack Bunker’s TRUE GRIFT is a rollicking misadventure that might deter anyone who’s ever thought about making a quick buck off an insurance company. This first novel is perfect for fans of Elmore Leonard, Carl Hiaasen and Donald E. Westlake — which is to say, all smart readers.”
–Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of “The Fixer” and “Suspicion”
“TRUE GRIFT is a breezy page-turner that’s fun-filled and loaded with laughs from the jump. Donald Westlake fans will love this one,” Joseph Wambaugh, bestselling author of “The Blue Knight,” “The New Centurions,” and “The Onion Field”
