—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"[G]rand entertainment...Double and triple crosses abound in the careening plot...The writing is tight and wonderfully glib, and Vorhaus slyly, shrewdly hints that he’s snuking the reader. No caper-novel fan should miss this one."
“Amusing thriller about the misadventures of a con man.”
“Now that’s a scheme!”
“Whether you’re a mook or a snuke, The California Roll is more than entertainment, it’s an education. Buyer beware: John Vorhaus will steal your money and hours of your life, giving you nothing in return but a great read—fast, funny and very, very smart.”
–Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of A Date You Can’t Refuse
“Please let me send you $50 million.”
–Patrick Noochi, Nigerian businessman
“John Vorhaus sure knows his stuff—a little too well, if you ask me. The California Roll is a hilarious and highly suspicious ride into the world of grift. It’s an immensely enjoyable read and an excellent primer if you’re looking for a career change.”
–Lisa Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of Revenge of the Spellmans
“It’s not too late to get a real job!”
