    I have a friend who i see at happy hour sometimes and he was telling me about a book he was writing. I told him when it was finished I would put up a post on my site about it. He's a real character... anyways.. some of you might be interested.

    The theme of this book is a Tour de Noir of a gamblers life. Written in the third person, it describes the successes and eventual downfall of a young hustler. The book extensively describes gambling situations, cheating moves, scams against casinos and casino methods of cheating players. Heretofore unpublished, and possibly unknown even to law enforcement, are the conspiracies and actions of notorious Nevada cheating crews. Gambling on golf, backgammon, gin rummy and poker, and methods employed to take advantage of opponents, are extensively discussed.

    The early chapters are moments in present time followed by reflection of the protagonist on his past and maturation, development of an exculpatory personal philosophy, love interest (explicit sex) and sexual encounters. His interactions with the Mafia, famous gamblers like “Titanic” Thompson, and present day high-rollers are authentic. Throughout his adventures the humor and irony in life situations are captures.
