I like CONS, SCAMS, & GRIFTS, also, and also recommend reading 32 CADILLACS first. However, DKA's first run-in with the Gypsy clan was in a short story. The title escapes me at the moment, but it's included in the DKA short story collection STAKEOUT ON PAGE STREET, and the cover illustration on that excellent Crippen & Landru publication is from the Gypsy story. Events from that short story are also referred to in CS&G.
