Fast and Loose

Fast and Loose

Joel Fitch used to be a con artist.
That is, until his final scam went belly up.
Now, Joel has no idea what comes next. The movies never tell you what to do after you’ve walked into the sunset.
Besides, Joel’s past is catching up with him. Danny Hemming, a producer on television’s trashiest current affairs program, is looking for someone to give him the inside scoop on the latest scams – and he’s not taking no for an answer.
Once again, Joel finds himself in over his head … and there’s also the matter of Joel’s missing mentor, Richard Mordecai.
Getting square has never been so tough.

Another fast and furious ride from Australia’s funniest fraudster.
