About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the Mark Twain Journal Award for "significant contributions to American Literature"

In a a fast-moving novel of the raw and brutal world of big-time gambling, Don Porter is out to beat Las Vegas at its own game--putting his money, his woman, and his life on the line.

“"It was my misfortune to have missed The Quarterback, and thus be unaware of this fine, unflinching writer. He does not prettify, embroider, ornament or otherwise offend against the utter dignity of his hard, enduring characters; out of their meanness and misery, he has made a story which I envy, in prose as clean and businesslike as a switchblade. Make sure everybody hears about this book; it’s not about a gambler and a broad and a fighter at all—it’s about the human condition, and it’s beautiful." - ”—George V. Higgins, author of The Friends of Eddie Coyle

From the Author:

In 1969, while traveling through Reno, Nevada, I picked up a copy of Edward O' Thorp's Beat the Dealer. Thorp, working with computers, had devised a strategy for overcoming the house's advantage in the game of blackjack. Thorpe's book opened a floodgate. Hordes of professional card counters inundated the casinos of Nevada. I became one of those card counters. This novel is inspired by that experience.
