About the Author
-Martin J. Smith, author of The Wild Duck Chase, Oops, and Poplorica, as well as five novels, including Combustion
It sounds like an Elmore Leonard novel...a professional gambler, a sports writer, and a priest hit Vegas with a $30,000 bankroll. This is an exhilarating, wildly entertaining read that, as a bonus, will also teach you how to a win at the blackjack table. There's no risk involved in gambling on this book... it's a bet that's sure to pay-off.”
-Lee Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of Adrian Monk mysteries and Fox & O'Hare thrillers
"The best description of the rollercoaster life of a professional blackjack player. Reed makes you feel you are at the table with big money on the line.
I will encourage my students to read this book."
-Ted Baptista, Professional Blackjack Player and Instructor --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

I read this book in two sittings - would have been a single straight sitting if I could read while driving but my wife and the Irish police force take issue with such practices. I highly recommend this book and am hoping that the author will at some point reveal what happened in his second year counting cards. If that book is ever published, I will be first in line to buy it.
Overall the book was entertaining and it was a fun read. The book was realistic and anyone who likes gambling stories will enjoy this story.
