Publisher's Summary

Scott Crane abandoned his career as a professional poker player 20 years ago and hasn’t returned to Las Vegas, or held a hand of cards, in 10 years. But troubling nightmares about a strange poker game he once attended on a houseboat on Lake Mead are drawing him back to the magical city. For the mythic game he believed he won did not end that night in 1969—and the price of his winnings was his soul. Now, a pot far more strange and perilous than he ever could imagine depends on the turning of a card.
Enchantingly dark and compellingly real, this World Fantasy Award–winning novel is a masterpiece of magic realism set in the gritty, dazzling underworld known as Las Vegas.

Fans of American Gods will like this one

This is an excellent story. The world is rich and dark. It reminds me a great deal of Gaiman's American Gods and that is a good thing. The characters are well developed and I like how they involve the supernatural with real world people and events.

Bronson Pinchot does the narration and he is one of the best. This is something different from the standard urban fantasy fair and you well definitely enjoy it.
