The Con Job (Leverage, #1) by Matt ForbeckThe rich and powerful take what they want. We steal it back for you.
When a disreputable dealer starts swindling aged and ailing comic-book creators out of their wealth—and their high-valued comics and artwork—the daughter of one victim comes to ex-insurance investigator Nathan Ford and his team of counter-crooks for help.

With time short, the team must take down a ruthless mark whose true motives have yet to be revealed…
