What makes London Frog a winner is a combination of its sometimes charming, somewhat humorous, and always likable amateur con-man, Todd Gleason, and the ability of author Joseph Pittman to create a richly complex story filled with quirky characters and an amusing and absorbing plot that is practically impossible to second guess.

The story is propelled by seamless writing, witty dialog, and non-stop action, as it takes the reader on an adventure filled with some pretty big coincidences and a cast
This book was interesting. It took me a while to read, there were lots of characters and plot twists that left me out of breath. The main character was a good guy/ con man. It had humor and intrigue. I would recommend this book, and I will be looking for more by this author.

Joseph Pittman did an excellent job keeping his characters and plot twists interesting, suspenseful and threw in a bit of humor as well. Kept me guessin all the way till the end. This was the third book I've read by Joseph Pittman, and have enjoyed them all.
just not my type of book, I didn't care for some of the language.
His other fiction was more my style.
