A convicted felon turned master storyteller pays tribute to the art of the scam in this clever and captivating collection of crime stories Jeff Peters is an honest swindler. He believes in never taking something from a man unless he gives in return-whether it's fake jewelry, a crack on the head, or a bogus deed to the Brooklyn Bridge. His partner, Andy Tucker, is a different story. Andy is a grifter with imagination, who would rook every rube in the world if he got the chance. Instead, he'll have to settle for the city of Pittsburgh. When Andy and Jeff descend on the Steel City, no millionaire's pocketbook is safe. But then again, neither is the conscience of a conman. "Conscience in Art" is one of O. Henry's finest stories, demonstrating all the wit, charm, and ingenuity that made him famous. This collection of classic tales set on the wrong side of the law showcases a master craftsman at the top of his form. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
