Try NOT COMIN' HOME TO YOU, Block's fictionalization of the Starkweather/Fugate killing spree, or THE GIRL WITH THE LONG GREEN HEART (recently reprinted in a Hard Case Crime edition), which tells a story about con men that I think you'll find has a lot in common with GRIFTER'S GAME.

Or you can wait till next February and read LUCKY AT CARDS, the rediscovered Block novel we'll be publishing -- originally published under the pseudonym "Sheldon Lord," this one hasn't been available in any form for about 40 years.
