The con is on!
Prewitt Paltry used to be the best con artist in NYC. But fate has left him divorced, broke, his glory days behind him . . . And then a golden opportunity falls into his lap.
Ranger du Courtemanche is the aging patriarch of the centuries-old French aristocratic Courtemanche family. Despite the filthy-rich façade, the family’s fortune is quickly dwindling and their ancestral chateau is secretly in ruins. Enter Prewitt, who cozies up to the reclusive family – Ranger and his two sisters - and warns them that their chateau and wealth have been targeted by an ancient secret society. Panicked and desperate, Ranger enlists Prewitt in the fight to defend his family’s honor and fortune. Et voila! The trap is set.
With the help of an eccentric team of wacky French con artists, and three Corgies, Prewitt gets to work. But, the closer he gets, the more the con unravels. Ancient betrayals, priceless jewels, and forbidden loves . . . the Courtemanches turn out to be a lot more than Prewitt bargained for.

"The reader is immediately drawn into the story . . . There is a thread of humor and amusement that runs through the length of the book" - Screencraft

Fans of Now You See Me, Oceans 11, and American Hustle will love this "primed for a broad audience film adaptation" book (Screencraft).
