From the New York Times and #1 international bestselling author of Far from True comes a short story in which the grifter is not who he seems to be.

Sam seems like an ordinary guy. While he is filling up his car with gas in Stamford, Connecticut, a car whips into the station lot, stops alongside, and asks him for directions to La Guardia Airport. Gian claims that he is from Milano, but Sam can spot an imitation in a second. The accent is all wrong, and while Gian tries to sell him counterfeit luxury coats that he can’t take back on the plane to Italy, they bump hips, and Sam feels what he thinks is a gun tucked into Gian’s belt. “Jacket Man” is a story of how to escape with your life—and some counterfeit pleather coats while you’re at it.

“Jacket Man” by Linwood Barclay is one of twenty short stories within Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives. View the full series list at mulhollandbooks.com and read them all.

Quotes & Awards

  • ”In a fully convincing performance, Kevin Stillwell narrates Linwood Barclay’s story about a con job involving leather jackets. Stillwell guides listeners through Sam the narrator’s day, reading with an engaged tone but no unusual dramatics. Sam’s exchange with Gian, an Italian salesman, involves little beyond a questionable Italian accent. Stillwell’s calm demeanor and accent heighten the mood of suspense as well as Barclay’s crafty plot twists. A short story with a whopper of a climax, Jacket Man is a great option for a short car ride—or for a mystery lover just starting to listen to audiobooks. Crime fiction fans can also pair it with others from Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series for longer listening enjoyment.”
