Boston PI Spenser and right hand Hawk follow a con man’s
trail of smoke and mirrors in the latest entry of the iconic
crime series. After conning everyone from the cable news
shows to the local cops, it looks like the grifter’s latest
double cross may be his last.
Connie Kelly thought she’d found her perfect man on an
online dating site. He was silver-haired and handsome, with
a mysterious background working for the C.I.A. She fell so
hard for M. Brooks Welles that she wrote him a check for
almost three hundred thousand dollars, hoping for a big
return on her investment.
But within weeks, both Welles and her money are gone. Her
therapist, Dr. Susan Silverman, hands her Spenser’s card.
A self-proclaimed military hotshot, Welles had been a
frequent guest on national news shows speaking with
authority about politics and world events. But when he
disappears, he leaves not only a jilted lover but a growing
list of angry investors, duped cops, and a team of
paramilitary contractors looking for revenge.
Enter Spenser, who quickly discovers that everything about
Welles is phony. His name, his résumé, and his client list
are nothing but an elaborate fraud. But uncovering the truth
won’t be easy, as he’ll have to keep the mystery man alive
long enough to get back his client’s money. As the trail
winds from Boston to backroads Georgia, Spenser will need
help from trusted allies Hawk and Teddy Sapp to make sure
Welles’s next con is his last.
