[Read by Cary Hite]

Iceberg Slim, bestselling author of 'Pimp' and 'Trick Baby', brings us yet another riveting classic. Continuing the saga begun in 'Trick Baby', Long White Con tells the story of the most incredible con man ever to have risen.

Picking up where 'Trick Baby' left off, we dive into the world of Johnny O'Brien, better known as White Folks. After learning to use his fair skin to his advantage to rise to the top of the Chicago con game, Folks is back for the big money and the big stakes of the long con.

Following the death of his partner and mentor, Blue, Folks takes off for Canada. Having honed his skills and polished his acting, Johnny is done cheating marks out of small money. With a gang of grifters working with him - High Pockets Kate, High Ass Marvel, and the Vicksburg Kid among them - Folks is after the biggest score of his life.

About the Author:

Iceberg Slim  (1918 - 1992), a.k.a. Robert Beck, was born in Chicago and initiated into the life of the pimp at age eighteen. He briefly attended the Tuskegee Institute but dropped out to return to the streets of the South Side, where he remained, pimping, until he was forty-two. After several stints in jail, culminating in a ten-month stay in Cook County, he decided to give up the life and turned to writing. With a family to feed, he folded his life into the pages of ''Pimp'', which emerged as a definitive chronicle of street life. Slim was catapulted into the public eye as a new American hero, known for speaking the truth whether that truth was ugly, sexy, rude, or blunt. He published six more books based on his life and different aspects of the ghetto black, pimp community. Slim died at age seventy-three in 1992, one day before the Los Angeles riots.
