Schemes. While I read Jack Bunker’s debut novel titled, True Grift, I kept thinking that the characters were like those in Carl Hiaasen’s Florida novels only relocated to California. A bankrupt shady lawyer meets an insurance company employee at a golf club, and they concoct a scheme to defraud the insurance company. What could possibly go wrong, especially when they use the hapless workers at the golf club to enact the scheme, and then borrow some money from a mob loan shark at the club? I found the implausible story hilarious, the characters zany, and the novel wildly entertaining.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
