From the internationally #1 bestselling novelist comes a tale of small time criminals on a new grift that might cost them everything. Peppard and Jarman have a new grift that seems simple enough: Go to the airport. Imitate a hired driver by copying a name that they see in the crowd. Collect the passenger before the real drive does, take him to a secluded area and rob them. It seems like a simple plan to make some quick cash for these two amateurs-that is, until they finally meet a pro. "Meet and Greet" by Ian Rankin is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books's Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.

"Ian Rankin spins his crime fiction magic in 20 minutes with this fun short story about a pair of amateur con artists working Heathrow Airport. Narrator Neil Scott Barbour makes the most of the time, enveloping readers in the anticipation and buildup to a first-class plot twist. Barbour convincingly transitions between an English accent for the duo and a Southern American accent for their mark. He delivers the denouement with the calm necessary to ignite Rankin's explosive ending. The story is a delectable taste of Rankin's style for those unfamiliar with his work or new audiobook listeners. It's a perfect audiobook for short listening times or an excellent partner to the other shorts from Mulholland Books's Strand Originals series. J.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
