The Grifter's Daughter Kindle Edition
IMAGINE YOU STOLE A MILLION DOLLARS –
FROM YOUR FIANCÉ. ON THE EVE OF YOUR WEDDING.
Dani Silver doesn’t have to imagine. She just did it. And she’s got big plans for her share of that million in cash she and her father scammed from her billionaire fiancé (although strictly speaking, that might make him her ex-fiancé.)
Now she’s going to run her own operation—a long con, a dying art currently practiced by only a few old-timers. Fortunately, she learned from the best con man still living, as he’s happy to remind Dani…often—Leroy “Pops” Amadeus Logan, who happens to be her pops.
Dani—or Mona Pasternelli, or Carly McNair, or any number of aliases she can pull out of her pocket—has gotten by for the past couple of decades on small cons. She’s got a con for every occasion. Need to get rid of your abusive husband? No murder necessary…it’s so much more satisfying to just mess with him and screw up his life.
Thanks to her ex-fiancé, she can afford to put up the front money for the sting she’s got in mind, and she’s looking for a mark. But not just any mark. Her idea of going sort of straight requires that the mark be crooked and really deserving of being fleeced.
The perfect candidate appears in the person of a televangelist who talked the widowed mother of a friend into signing over her house to his church. When the plan runs riotously amok, Dani goes back to Pops for help in figuring out where she went wrong. She backtracks, adjusts course, and—with her delightfully cockamamie crew in tow—the game is on again!
Author Lindsay has created a refreshingly human and appealing heroine who’ll keep readers coming back for more. Laugh-out-loud funny, inventive, and appropriately low-life, this delectable first taste of the Dani Silver series will delight fans of heist and caper movies (think THE STING, and all the OCEAN’S films, especially the all-female OCEAN’S EIGHT), TV series about loveable con artists and female criminals, like LEVERAGE, IMPOSTERS, and of course GOOD GIRLS—and books!
There just aren’t enough of them. But if you can’t get enough of Donald Westlake’s riotous Dortmunder gang and Lawrence Block’s Bernie Rhodenbarr, Dani’s your new BFF.

Now that I've had my spit, I really enjoyed the story. It had humour, quirky characters and a mixture of main character's determination to become independent in her chosen career and a hidden virtue of doing good. I was disappointed that we didn't get the outcome of towards Jigg's and his mother's house - after all, they were the original reason behind the whole story confrontation. Brock and Marcy seemed to drift away into the fog as well. Is it the intention for them to pop up again in future books in the series?
I'd read more of this author if given the opportunity, esp in this series. Recommend.
This book was very interesting and full of humour, plenty of action and planning of a con artist and her team to relieve others of their ill gotten gains.I enjoyed this story but, would have liked the ending to include what happened to Jiggs & Marcy and did Jiggs get payment for his mother's house? After all, he was the reason for this particular con job. A good weekend read.

Daughter of a con man turns out to be an adequate con merchant herself.
Outside of that I don't remember much of the book so it failed to imprint on me.
An easy way to pass a few hours.
Hoping to fleece a bad guy, the 1st con fails, so we do it all over again. By 70% of the book, I just wanted it to end. Unfortunately, too slow going for my tastes.
