Synopsis: BILLY PHELAN'S GREATEST GAME is the second in William Kennedy's brilliant cycle of novels known as the Albany Trilogy. Billy Phelan, a slightly tarnished poker player, pool hustler, and small-time bookie, moves through the lurid nighttime glare of a tough Depression-era town. A resourceful man full of Irish pluck, Billy works the fringes of Albany sporting life with his own particular style and private code of honor until he finds himself in the dangerous position of potential go-between in the kidnapping of a political boss's son.
LEGS is the first part of the Albany Trilogy while the last is IRONWEED.
