Glen and Stan team up again in this exciting follow-up to The Big Get-Even.
Two high-flying con men stumble upon a lone scientist and his half-genius, half-addlepated invention, which seems to promise a big payoff if they can dupe the right buyers. But infidelity, gangsters, foreign governments, and their own greed offer stumbling blocks galore.
A Note From the Publisher
“Gangsters and canoodling bombshells, goodhearted galoots, sinister gadgets, and an African giant pouched rat can add up to only one thing: Glen and Stan are back in this new hardboiled thriller with a heart by Paul Di Filippo. Do yourself a favor: make with the feet to your favorite joint and scam a couple of hours with The Deadly Kiss-Off, the funniest caper to come down the pike this year.”
-Elizabeth Hand, Nebula Award–winning author of Hard Light and Wylding Hall
“Like its predecessor The Big Get-Even, the opening novel in the series, The Deadly Kiss-Off is a wild, forceful, and fierce expedition through the low-life lived as the high-life. The author’s crew of miscreants, like Westlake’s Dortmunder Gang, is lovable and pitiable, the grand scheme of this novel burns as a plan gone agley. Paul Di Filippo fills Westlake’s missing place in the suspense canon triumphantly.”
-Barry N. Malzberg
