Publisher's Summary

Whoever says crime doesn't pay isn't doing it right.
There are hundreds of casinos in Las Vegas, and Billy Cunningham knows how to rip off every one. His scams are a thing of beauty - so perfectly orchestrated that onlookers believe he and his crew are winning fair and square. In a town where bosses will kill to protect their profits, Billy can't afford to make mistakes, but even the best-laid plans can go wrong...
Desperate to keep his team out of jail, Billy agrees to help stop a legendary family of thieves from taking down a casino. But he has no intention of breaking the cheater's code: never rat out your own kind. He's running his own con on the casino's psycho owner and his vicious, violent wife. Throw in a murderous drug dealer, a vengeful gaming agent, and the girl Billy's never forgotten, and this scam artist is playing for sky-high stakes: a cool eight million, and the chance to live long enough to spend it.

Meaningless time-passer

The narration of the book is flawless - no doubt about it. However, there's not much to the book itself. The story could have been told in 50 pages with room to recapitulate WW2.

If daily TV soap operas are your thing this book might suite. Otherwise: these are not the droids you're looking for.

Barely worth finishing

Any additional comments?

A mediocre heist story. The basic outline is interesting enough. But the characters vary between wit and observational skills that require psychic powers on the one hand and near idiocy on the other. The explanations of criminal law and procedure are absurd. The explanations about casino security are not believable or engaging. The characters are shallow. I won't look for anything more from this author.
