It was cold this weekend, dry because ... you know non-existent drought in Victoria ... but reading weather because frankly too cold to battle it out the vague pointlessness of the garden.

From the Blurb:

Joel Fitch used to be a con artist.

That is, until his scam paid off but his life went belly up. Now, two years later, at the ripe old age of 22, Joel has a mattress full of cash and no idea what comes next. The movies never tell you what to do after you’ve walked into the sunset.

Having first come across the author when he was known as "The Honest Conman" talking on ABC Regional Radio - I'm going to take a guess at the idea he might know what he's talking about here.

From the Blurb:

Friendship and fraud is a dangerous mix

Joel Fitch has watched every twist-happy movie there is about con men, and he thinks he knows it all. After nineteen years of being a sucker, Joel’s going to take everything he’s learned from the screen and finally get his. He’s going to be a master con artist.
