Better To Give Than Deceive
When you lose your share of $2.4 million, do you walk away, or settle the score?
After a successful heist, three grifters stop overnight in a small town off the beaten path when their leader Frank is arrested and their $2.4 million score disappears.
Believing there is no honor among thieves, Frank is reluctant to help fellow grifters Jared and Chance recover the money while he remains in jail awaiting trial. But with an unpredictable cop on the take, a double-cross in the works, and a hitman dispatched to recover the money, time is a luxury the trio of grifters cannot afford to waste by trying to figure out who's double crossing whom if they hope to have any chance of recovering the money and staying alive.
And before they lose what little leverage they have, Jared and Chance make a bold and daring move to rig Frank's trial and execute a plan that sets in motion events that lead to a dramatic verdict, unforeseen consequences, and the wisdom that it would have been better to give than deceive.

Better Off Dead
Sequel to Better To Give Than Deceive
Three years ago Chance and Jared left a hitman in a coma and their partner in prison when they walked away with $2.4 million. It's three years later, Frank's out, the hitman recovered, and they're going after the money.
When Frank is released from prison, he follows the money back to Chance and Jared where he discovers they're in the middle of a high stakes con. Frank secretly attempts to infiltrate the con and stack the odds in his favor by putting himself in a position to rip them off yet again. The stakes are raised and an arrest is imminent when police receive an anonymous tip that pits Jared against Chance to determine which grifter is set free while the other is sent to prison. And if they don't have enough to worry about, another hitman has been dispatched to finish the job the first hitman failed to complete, and this time their luck may have run out. Chance and Jared have a plan, but for everything to work out, the only solution available may be that one of them is better off dead.

Better The Devil You Know

And while Jared is on the run, the cops are in hot pursuit, but they may have to get in line behind the syndicate that still wants him dead.
If Jared can figure out a way to turn the tables on his accuser trying to frame him, the cops trying to arrest him, and the syndicate trying to kill him, he just might be able to walk away with his freedom, the money, and most importantly his life.
