Trust Me, By Peter Leonard

Peter Leonard, son of the better known Elmore, shares his father's predilection for heists and hucksters. His debut novel, Quiver, showed a genetic affinity for crime writing, while Trust Me, sees him playing more freely with the genre's cliches.

When a couple of Detroit bad guys break into a gambler's home, they get propositioned by the lady of the house a red-head with "nice jugs". She wants them to help retrieve money from a slippery loan shark, but what sounds like a straightfoward scam ends up in a series of complications and double-crossings that leave the reader nicely flummoxed.
