FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘It started at exactly eleven minutes past three A.M. on Sunday when Bello made his first appearance in the pit, picked up a pair of dice, and asked that the house limit on bets be taken off.’ And so began the grueling session: three days and three nights of a continuous dice game. At stake: the biggest, gaudiest, and best casino hotel in Las Vegas—Joe Martin’s Rainbow’s End. To the syndicate that wanted it, it was worth a four hundred thousand dollar risk. And Bello, the shrewd professional gambler, was the man who could win it for them. For Joe Martin, his girl, his top security man, the casino’s pianist, Bello’s girl, and for all the others, these were days and nights of fascination and fear. Steve Fisher takes the reader inside Las Vegas and shows what casino life is really like. Here is the desperate ‘go-broke,’ a familiar Las Vegas type, and here are the pretty little show girls whose hopes and accomplishments are two different things. And this is the story of the two couples who found themselves so closely involved with the fortunes of the game: the story of the cynical casino owner and the beautiful, innocent schoolteacher who shared his ordeal; and that of the casino’s pianist who caught the attention of the gambler’s girl. Here is a colorful, exciting, and suspenseful novel by the author of I WAKE UP SCREAMING and DESTINATION TOKYO. Bookseller Inventory # 22813
