TABLE STAKES WITH THE GRIM REAPER!
As a wet-behind-the-ears kid, Faro Blake had learned every trick of the gambler's trade from his father, A.B. Blake, the last, great survivor of the Natchez Cleanout.
Soon enough, whether his clever hands were closing around a gun, a deck of cards or a beautiful lady, Faro moved with a smooth grace that always put him on top and riding easy.
But now his father was dead - a victim of lynch-mob justice - and Faro was in a game he had to win... a game where deadly killers made up the rules, where a warm and willing woman sweetened the pot, and vengeance - or death - would be the last, big prize.
