The Big Get-Even
by Paul Di Filippo
A disbarred lawyer and an ex-arsonist find themselves organizing an elaborate real estate scam to take a shady, rich speculator for twenty million dollars. This cast of lively eccentrics discovers along the way that getting to the big payoff might be more scary fun than the money itself.
Paul Di Filippo sold his first story in 1977. Since then, he has written and published over two hundred more, as well as several novels, amounting to roughly thirty-five books. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island with his partner Deborah Newton.
