Publisher's Summary

Charles Deville Wells has two loves in life: Jeannette, his beautiful French mistress, and his sumptuous yacht, the Palais Royal. At the risk of losing both, Wells stakes everything he owns at the roulette tables in Monte Carlo's world-famous casino - and in the space of a few days he breaks the bank, not once but 10 times, winning the equivalent of millions in today's money.
Is he phenomenally lucky? Has he really invented an 'infallible' gambling system, as he claims? Or is he just an exceptionally clever fraudster?
Based on painstaking research on both sides of the Channel, this biography reveals the incredible true story of the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo and went on to become Europe's most wanted criminal.
