“Eric Garcia proves himself an expert at the art of the con.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A very entertaining book . . . It is Eric Garcia who is the master flimflam man. . . . [His novels] share a wild imagination translated in a wry, no-fat writing style. . . . Matchstick Men fires up the fun, but [this] con man novel is also complex.” —USA Today

“Eric Garcia pulls off a nifty con game of his own with a hall-of-mirrors story where what you see is rarely what you get. It’s an elaborate shell game of mooks and motives, and when the pea is finally revealed, it’s the most dexterous sleight-of-hand since Kevin Spacey strolled out of a police station in The Usual Suspects.” —The Boston Globe

“Matchstick men are con artists who practice the subtle art of separating the innocent and clueless from their money. Eric Garcia . . . writes so convincingly and yet somehow sympathetically about the namesakes of his new novel that you’d swear he’s taken a few suckers himself.”—GQ
