Attention #Grifters! #Leverage might have been cancelled, but the Grift goes on and ever on! The franchise recently released “The Con Job” – the first Leverage Series novel, written by Matt Forbeck, Electric Entertainment – on December 31st. “The Con Job” which took place at Comic-Con International where America’s favorite cons, as shown on TNT’s successful hit series, developed a scheme that is so fun to read, Leverage fans savored every page. The franchise is scheduled to release, “The Zoo Job” by Keith R.A. Decandido on March 5, 2013 and “The Bestseller Job” by Greg Cox on May 7, 2013 – both now available for pre-order.
Check out this fantastic review Wired.com posted on their website for the first novel, “The Con Job” –
The Con Job is a fun book and really captures the energy of the show. The banter between the characters is written well (which could have easily been hit or miss), which if you are a fan of the show you know how much this means. The success of the program relied on the chemistry of the characters through their words and facial reactions to each other. A good writer can capture this behavior and Forbeck captures it. He gets the winks, the nods and the raised eyebrows. I recommend this novel for fans of the show (to keep the magic going) as well as great introduction to those who haven’t seen the show. The Con Job is a quick, entertaining read that holds true to the show canon. The rich and powerful might take what they want, but you can get The Con Job now.
The franchise can be purchased online at amazon.com and the iTunes iBook store or at local bookstores, including Barnes & Noble for $7.99 each (hard copy and e-book format.)
