(From the publisher):
You can bet your life on these tales of high-rolling excitement and intrigue.
From Vegas casinos to small-town bingo parlors, from lottery fever to March madness, gambling has become a national pastime. And when there's so much money at stake, crime is sure to follow. Head to a dangerous illegal gambing den of 1920s Florida with Jonathon King, or beat the odds in Vegas with Jeff Abbott. Go for broke at an Indian casino with Judith Van Gieson, or bet on trouble with Leslie Glass in New York. Roll the dice with Robert J. Randisi at a Midwest riverboat casino, get lucky with Elaine Viets on a bingo cruise, or play deadly games with the ultimate dealers in crime fiction, Donald E. Westlake and Lawrence Block.
When the chips are down - the risk level goes up.
