Finley Goodhart Crime Capers

Sassy, Sexy Southern Suspense

Ex-con Finley Goodhart finds her criminal past--and criminal ex-boyfriend--useful in catching crooks. Can she make up for her past by helping victims double-cross their swindler? More importantly, can she convince Lex that going straight is the best (and most challenging) hustle of all?

While dealing with Lex--an ex who's doing his best to bamboozle Fin's heart--Finley's running from her past: a crooked cop dad, sharks, frauds, and mobsters. She's fighting her own style of justice: one where the con is the mark and the scam rewards the innocent. But if Finley gets caught, there's no honor among thieves. She could pay with her life.

“Faced paced, bold, heartbreaking, this book has it all. It takes us deep into the world of hustlers, cons and dirty business. Yet it gives us glimpse of just how pure-hearted some of the worst con artist can be. Highly recommended for lovers of mystery and thrillers.” 

"Expertly written with engaging dialogue and a fast-paced read, this mystery kept me glued to the pages. Another great novel from Larissa and I look for more action with Fin, Lex and a surprise newcomer to their fold." -- Dru Ann Love, Raven award-winning blogger at Dru's Book Musing

Ex-grifter Finley Goodhart may try to stay on the straight and narrow, but walking that thin line becomes wobbly when she believes her friend Penny was murdered. The last thing she wants is to work with her ex-partner (and ex-boyfriend), the brilliant (brilliantly frustrating) British con artist, Lex Leopold. However, when it appears Penny's demise might be related to an exclusive matchmaking service for millionaires, Fin needs Lex's help to pull a long con to get the goods on Penny.
