(From the publisher):
On the record - Alec was innocent of murder, cleared by a jury, protected by the unwritten law that frees a man to kill the wife who betrays him.
Off the record - everyone thought he was guilty as hell!
Only three people knew he was innocent:
The victim - and she couldn't talk!
The killer - and killers don't talk!
And Alec - who nearly talked himself to death!
How could he shed the burden of guilt for a crime he didn't commit? His only weapon was his strange genius for poker. He wielded it well - to win a stake, and outface a murderer.
