From the New York Times and number-one international best-selling author of Far from True, a short story where the grifter is not who it seems.

Sam seems like an ordinary guy. While he is filling up his car with gas at a Stamford, Connecticut, station, a car whips into the station lot, stops alongside, and asks him for directions to LaGuardia airport. Gian claims that he is from Milan, but Sam can spot an imitation in a second. The "Italian's" accent is all wrong, and when he tries to sell him counterfeit luxury coats that he can't take back on the plane to Italy, they bump hips. And Sam feels that Gian has a gun tucked into his belt. Something, like the jackets, that Gian can't take back to Italy.

"Jacket Man" is a story of how to escape with your life - and some counterfeit pleather coats while you are at it.

"Jacket Man" by Linwood Barclay is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books' Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.
