A drama about a late middle aged, self absorbed, misogynist, small time, gambler, who's current passion is craps shooting. He goes to Las Vegas in an attempt to realize his dream of becoming a "heavy hitter", a big time bettor. There he gets involved with a vice boss, her henchman who's scheming to take her place, his call girl cohort and an old associate of his, from back home, who was formerly a petty criminal but who is now a born again Christian. The protagonist is brought face to face with his frailties as the story ends with a series of violent acts, surrounding he theft of five million dollars from the vice lords.
Here's an Ebook for the racing fans out there. I won't go into excruciating detail about the actual story as I don't want to give too much away but it's about a gambler, who wants to be recognised as a bigger gambler and is willing to spend as much money as he needs on impressing people and winning big. The actual Ebook itself is quite good with sampled sound effects and pretty pictures and makes reading quite easy. If you're into gambling and crime then give this a read (although there is quite a bit of foul language.)
