Only When I Larf Paperback
by Len Deighton
The three confidence tricksters - two blokes and a bird - had a style that earned them millions.
Silas was the leader, slick and self-assured - but dissatisfied.
Bob was the junior partner, longing for the open road where pickings were rich and the living was easy. And Liz, Silas' mistress, was...in between. Theirs was a built-in love triangle with its own rewards...and its own dangers.
In New York these con-artists do a 'business deal' worth millions.
But back in London Silas' plan to bilk an emergent African nation misfires.
Then Bob takes over the running of the operation - and Liz.
A Beirut bank is their target and each member of the trio gets what he or she deserves - each with a twist of lemon.
This new reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arnold Schwartzman, and a brand new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.
