Leverage The Con Job Review

Posted on: January 14, 2013

Leverage The Con Job CoverWith the end of TNT’s Leverage illustrated by its December 25th series finale, it seemed like the end of an era.

And after five years of watching the crew provide leverage for those less fortunate, I was unsure if we had any more cons to see.

Without rehashing the same ole con, it seemed like the time to end the series (though I have yet to watch the last aired episodes of the fifth season).

But Leverage is not over, not by a long shot. The Con Job (A Leverage Novel) is the first of three novels slated for release in the coming months, released a single week after the series finale.

Nate and his team run a con at Comic-Con International after they receive a job from the daughter of an ailing comic book artist who was swindled by a comic book dealer.

The Con Job brings all the elements of the television series, except the anticipated cry of “Damn it, Hardison!” from Eliot, with the intricate twists of the cons expected from Leverage. It begins like any con seen on the television series, keeping me reading throughout the night.

Being familiar with the television series, I know the team as intimately as any other fan of the TNT original series. The Con Job is an upstanding stand-alone book that can be read by anyone from a novice to the series to a longtime fan of Leverage.

Hardison is in his geek element, Eliot reveals some of his past, and Parker is the best Black Widow that some of the convention goers have ever seen. And Nate shows another facet of his relationship with his deceased son Sam.

Bringing the show from the screen to the page, The Con Job is another con, another chance to see the leverage team in action. And it won’t be the last TV tie-in novel: The Zoo Job (A Leverage Novel) will be released on March 5, 2013.
