    1. Good storyI like historical fictionjust finished The Fall of Giants and i like getting different perspectives of the timeother than that i probably would not have read this book I don t care about cons or flim flams but i did enjoy getting to know Ben and why he did what he did The ending wasn t very informative but i still liked it.

    2. I was pleasantly surprised by this book I picked it up at the library on a whim It was engaging and I honestly did not see a lot of the twists coming I was a little put off by the ending which I found to be to abrubt but I think it s because I wanted to know .

    3. First novel, author spoke at Virginia Festival of the Book about con men and difficulty writing a complicated con, keeping the tricks hidden and the timing of their exposure But it works, the ending s a little fizzled, but the scheme and characters keep you hooked.

    4. I would have given this a 4 but the ending doesn t tie all the loose ends together and I hate books and movies that leave you wondering A great read if you like the movies The Sting or Ocean s Eleven.

    5. Wasn t sure I liked this book when I first started it but it kept me reading and thought the historical aspect added to ths story of cons conning consok me awhile to figure out what all the characters were doing to each other.

    6. Interesting story of con men and Flim flam artists c 1916 New York I found it well written and easy to read.

    7. A really good book, sort of historical fiction, about bunco men and women in 1916 New York Really interesting to figure out who was playing who.

    8. Great historical fiction book based on World War I time con men in NYC A very fun read that is well written.

    9. The multi layered story borrows its mood from the Great War itself, somber and laid over with a cloth of constant tension Haunting and intriguing, and the elaborate cons keep you guessing.
