(From the publisher):
Except for the Vugs, of course, Pete Garden is the best Bluff player there is. Ever since the Red Chinese germ weapon against Titan backfired on the human race, the vugs are here to stay, and skill at the Monopoly-like Bluff- usually just called The Game- is a requisite for sexual privilege and social status. But Pete Garden is unhappy, and not just because 'Lucky' Luckman is trying to muscle his way into their California group. Pete hasn't had any luck, and the thought of himself as a genetic dead end has him depressed. That's why he got sloppy last night and lost Berkeley. Pete's luck may be about to change...but someone is about to change the rules of The Game to include a deadly new element...murder.
