Give + Take

Ross Clifton is a brilliant jazz pianist—and an even more talented thief. He steals millions of dollars in diamonds and BMWs and gives all the money away. But his life as a latter-day Robin Hood is about to come to an abrupt end. Fast, funny, and felonious, Give + Take takes you on an economic shakedown cruise. Published as the first Concord Free Press novel, Give + Take is now out in commercial editions throughout the world.
