CAREER conman Reuben Littlejohn is determined to go straight this time after his release from prison, with the help of his new wife and her wealthy family.
But he hadn't counted on stumbling across a plot to kill his parole officer Lucy, with whom he is madly in lust. The instigator, nefarious criminal Frank Cornell, blackmails Reuben into becoming his accomplice. The only way he can save Lucy is to pretend to go along with Frank's Operation Luce End, while making sure it doesn't succeed. Never have his skills in lying and cheating been so vital!
But if Reuben's plan fails, it's his life at stake as well as Lucy's. Add to the mix a wife who’s trying to mould him into a pillar of respectability and in-laws who think he’s a lost cause, and Reuben soon discovers that going straight can be murder.

I didn't really mean to do it....Ahhhh how I love Reuben!I have never been a big fan of crime novels, but this one blends just the right amount of comedy with the right about of crime.
Reuben is a WONDERFUL character. Seeing his struggles big and small was an enjoyment.
However, Frank is evil! I guess you can reform them all right.
It's up to Reuben.....can he prevent a murder or is it pointless?
This story keeps you guessing to the very end.
Very well written and paced great.
