The idea for this book was born while I was in Thailand. For some reason, I got into the idea of con artists. While I had every intention of making it about the two con artist brothers, Jack and Joe, the book took on a life of its own and became about Charlotte Stiles, the newlywed detective investigating them. Never would I have guessed that the book would end up having the theme of life is short and change is good!
