This is a hoot. They don't write 'em like this anymore. Lucky at Cards is hard-boiled, suspenseful, and charmingly sleazy in a way that would be hard to duplicate today without descending into camp. The narrator evokes the mid-20th-century pulp ambiance quite well.

Block starts with some good story lines, but then the plot becomes very derivative and cliched. Outstanding narration kept this novel from being a total yawn. Block is a better writer than this book would indicate.
