"Conman is the story of young Neil Martin, a kindly family man. A bit geeky, a bit nerdy. If you met him, you would assume he runs a failing comic memorabilia store in Londons Soho. Which he does. In order to bail himself out of a huge stock-ruining, poster-sopping basement flood, he needs to make a claim on his insurance. Which he would do - if he'd remembered to pay his premium. Terrified of losing everything his wife Jane, his daughter, his business, his home and scared to appear the dumb, working-class pleb that Jane's father always took him for, Neil reluctantly agrees to help Christopher - a passing confidence trickster - use his premises for a big sting. Neil meets Christopher's crew and, as he introduces them to the world of the vintage comic collectable, he is introduced to the life of the grifter. But things are never as they seem in the twilight world of the confidence man. And when Christopher's real target is revealed, Neil finds himself plotting, switching, swapping, and scamming for revenge, for redemption. And for his life."--Global Books in Print

Comedy? Well, it's a bunch of laughs, isn't it? It can be for the audience. But for the comics, there's nothing quite so serious. And for the cast of Richard Asplin's novel, there's nothing quite so dangerous, either
