Synopsis

A good card mechanic is hard to find and even harder to change  His dentist’s poker game is the last place that card shark Bill Maynard expects to find another hustler. But that’s just what Mrs. Murray Rogers, the scheming wife with her eye on her husband’s fortune, is. The only problem is her husband’s still alive, and she’ll have to enlist the help of Bill in order to get what she wants. They’ve got a plan, but will Bill stick with it, or will the square life lull him into breaking his lucky streak? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
