(From the publisher):
Bret Maverick doesn't call poker gambling. In gambling you can lose. And losing is one thing Maverick doesn't plan to do as he roams the frontier looking for action.
But when he tangles with a larcenous lovely named Annabelle Bransford, a card-cutting cutthroat named Angel, a menacing marshal named Coop, and a gambling boat owner called the Commodore, he's in a no-limit game of everything wild. It's a deal where Bret needs bullets in his gun as much as aces in his hand... where stud can be played a couple of ways... and the only sure bet is that somebody will wind up with a dead man's hand...
