Todd Gleason, amateur confidence man and all-around charmer, can’t stand the fact that Henri and Elise Procopio, already rich beyond avarice, have just won the lottery. So, Todd does what any self-respecting crook would do. He follows them to London, where the couple is celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary. The flat where Todd is setting up shop falls through when he stumbles upon the landlord lying on the carpet, fatally shot. With sirens blaring in the background, this frog out of water suddenly finds himself running from the law and falling into the hands of a couple of goons. They’re not the only folks caught up in a scam spiraling dangerously out of control. There’s Clive, the hit man with a quick right hook; Brandy Alexander, the lovely blonde from the airplane; Beth Simon, an American friends of Todd’s who just can’t stop talking; and the bumbling Birdie, a man seeking revenge again Todd. Oh, and then there’s Todd’s pet frog, Toad, who may hold a secret all is own.
With sharp comic timing a pace that never quits, London Frog jets from New York to London and back again (and back again), for a wryly suspenseful, sexy tale of crime, punishment, and amphibians.
