Matchstick Men: Matchstick Men (Abridged / Audio Cassette, Abridged)
Roy and Frankie are matchstick men -- con artists.
Partners in elegant crimes for years, they know each other like brothers and have perfected the rules of the game.
Roy is the careful one. Saves every penny. Takes his medication regularly. Without it, his obsessive-compulsive disorder kicks in and he is too nauseated to do anything but stare at the dirt on the carpet.
Frankie is the adventurous one, hungry for a big score. He wants Roy to join him in running a tricky game, but Roy is distracted -- for good reason. Roy has just discovered that he is the father of a punky teenage daughter from a brief marriage that ended years ago. Much to the frustration of Roy's partner, the kid wants to get to know her father. She also wants to learn the family business.
