Synopsis

Eddy Lovell thinks there are only winners or losers. Eddy has been a loser. Only now he's learned how to work the streets of the Texas underworld and he seems to have put his losses behind him. Vicki Siegel, too, believes there are two kinds of people: winners and wannabes. For most of her life, Vicki has been a wannabe. A small-town girl with great looks and huge ambitions in the tough world of Hollywood. Now she's ready to become the actress she's worked hard to be. Vicki thinks she's a winner. Through a masterfully orchestrated series of feints and double-crosses, Eddy and Vicki learn that winning requires more then a role. Real players compete for much higher stakes than money or fame; they stake their lives. Cloaked identities and masked motives conspire in this gritty, fast-paced suspense thriller to thrust Eddy and Vicki into a violent world of murder, kidnapping, hightech theft and huge amounts of money - a world where it's sometimes impossible to tell who's a player and who is not. Clay Reynolds spins a fast-paced story of multiple deception and underworld intrigue. Humour and irony blend with vengeance and greed on the contemporary American landscape where there are truly no winners, no losers. There are only players.

Reynolds takes leave of the pre-Civil War West (Franklin's Crossing, 1992) in this hard-driving yarn brimming with the dregs of today's Texas underworld: self-styled mob bosses, shysters, con artists, pimps, whores, burned-out cops and other assorted redneck losers.

The Boston Globe

There is little virtuosic display for any of the four players (along with Wyner and Ansell, violinist Wendy Putnam and cellist Michael Reynolds), who contribute equally, and often play in unison (concord, again).
