From the New York Times and #1 international bestselling author of Far From True, a short story where the grifter is not who he seems. Sam seems like an ordinary guy. While he is filling up his car with gas in Stamford, Connecticut, a car whips into the station lot, stops alongside, and asks him for directions to LaGuardia Airport. Gian claims that he is from Milano, but Sam can spot an imitation in a second. The accent is all wrong, and while Gian tries to sell him counterfeit luxury coats that he can't take back on the plane to Italy, they bump hips, and Sam feels what he thinks is a gun tucked into Gian's belt.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

”In a fully convincing performance, Kevin Stillwell narrates Linwood Barclay’s story about a con job involving leather jackets. Stillwell guides listeners through Sam the narrator’s day, reading with an engaged tone but no unusual dramatics. Sam’s exchange with Gian, an Italian salesman, involves little beyond a questionable Italian accent. Stillwell’s calm demeanor and accent heighten the mood of suspense as well as Barclay’s crafty plot twists. A short story with a whopper of a climax, Jacket Man is a great option for a short car ride—or for a mystery lover just starting to listen to audiobooks. Crime fiction fans can also pair it with others from Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series for longer listening enjoyment.” AudioFile
