As we all await the release of Human Chess, here are a few other recently released novels to help pass the summer months.  I'm just starting the Ronda Rousey biography so I can't add it yet but confident it's a worthwhile read.  Also, Anaconda Choke is third book in the series (Suckerpunch, Hook and Shoot) and Vanishing Games is the sequel to Ghostman.

THE ART OF THE CON

Although released late last year, it still may have snuck by a few of you.  R. Paul Wilson (of the UK's Real Hustle) shows the history of several cons as well as walks you through his experiences performing for the History Channel's "Scammed".  A fun read with anecdotal stories that keeps the Non-fiction moving like a fiction thriller.

FRIENDSHIP OF CRIMINALS

Released mid March and for anyone who likes the Philly mob, well planned heists, and respect of the Polish pride of Philadelphia! Parts of Human Chess take part in Port Richmond and the surrounding areas, but Robert makes the city come alive as a character all its own.

ANACONDA CHOKE

You  know you're "Woodshed" Wallace when the cage is the only safe place for  you...

Aaron is back together with the Arcoverdes. Well... for the most part. Aaron is a man who constantly self-destructs by doing the first thing that comes to mind. This time in Brazil,  the issue is once more of multiple conflicts. Do we honor our traditions to the  folly of our future? Do we honor the wishes of our host and
the woman that we  love? Do we risk ourselves to help remove a criminal overlord with a "Deity"  complex? How should you fight a more athletic opponent where your strength plays  into their game plan? And, as always in the Woodshed series, Who do we  trust?

VANISHING GAMES

Moves at a break-neck pace like an ultra-violent Dan Brown. Former mentor and protege who need to fix a Heist gone wrong in the Far East.  A sequel to the underated Ghostman
