The Bust Out King

(1977)
A novel by

 
 
"Bust-out man: one skilled at switching crooked dice in and out of a game. Bust-out king: someone who is simply better at it than anyone else."

While growing up, Joe Farroni almost never saw his Uncle Rocco, and when Joe asked his parents about the man, they'd kept their lips zipped. Only when Joe is an adult - a writer struggling with a mortgage and two kids - does he discover his uncle's identity as the sneakiest, slipperiest, most successful conman to ever grace the streets of New York City. Now Rocco has passed away, and left it to Joe, his only heir, to write the story of his master schemes.

The Bust-Out King is a rollicking caper about a wise guy of the gritty 1970s, a determined individual with a financial scheme well ahead of his time.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author's personal collection.
