Show synopsis At fifty, Kevin Thompson Sinclair, an ex-NFL player, is an elegant, articulate, colorful figure. But with a criminal past, an extraordinarily difficult present, and a seemingly impossible future, his options are limited. This story begins when a tall blonde woman with a successful business, seeking a return to the dating scene, gets an e-mail from Kevin from an Internet dating site. The con and the mark meet, each seeking something the other can never give. The woman -the victim - who shared four and a half months of Kevin's strife, tells the story. Kevin wants to build a new, honest life and regain some modicum of respectability. But he finds our system, and the people in it, flawed. With no family support, he is driven back to old habits, and, eventually, madness. From his first flirting e-mail, Kevin takes a firm hold on his meal ticket. He is smooth and practiced at his craft: irresistible charm. Readers are given a glimpse into the mind of a lifelong con and user of innocents.
