Nineteen-year old Jack McGreary is adrift of the faded boomtown of Paradise Flats. Raised by his eccentric and increasingly erratic father, Jack has learned to live by his wits. When a pair of fast-talking swindlers named Virgil and Miss Rose blow through town, Jack falls in with them and together they go on a crime spree across the American Southwest, staging a series of elaborate and hilarious cons and heists. Young Jack is swept along into the world of hot jazz and cold, calculating crimes of the heart as the sexual tension between him and Miss Rose comes to the boil. Someone is being set up. But who is playing who?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliantly entertaining * The Times *
A terrifically enjoyable second novel...lyrical and hilarious, bleak and funny, with a love of history balanced against a rippingly clever plot * Daily Telegraph *
Beautifully and vividly described... the depiction of the era and the place seem spot on... This is a terrific novel - complex but fun, philosophical but sharp, perceptive but ambiguous...you're happy just to be along for the thrilling ride * Sunday Herald *
Ferguson's comic picaresque is a delight * Financial Times *
Ferguson fills his pages with fascinating historical detail and lovingly described cons. His lengthy descriptions of scams are enthralling, funny and perhaps even educational * Guardian *
