An aspiring gigolo takes to crime to better his position in life
Johnny Wells is a boy with goals. Not noble ones, perhaps, but, still, he has ambition. He intends to be the best damn hustler New York has ever seen. He wants sharp suits, rich food, and high-class women who pay to take him home. He has the looks; he has the charm. But he needs cash to get started.
An easy mark gives him the opportunity. He runs his usual game, charming his way into dinner and eventually into the woman’s bedroom. But then he thinks, why not get more?
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
