The novel spans 25 years, from the days when high-stakes poker was an illegal and often dangererous pastime, to the present, when poker has achieved world-wide popularity.It is a violent, sexy, and sometime darkly humorous story that features gangland intrigue, obsessive love, tragic death, a harrowing two-year exile in a Tijuana hellhole, revenge and redemption.

The story climaxes at the World Poker Championship in Las Vegas, where the Schoolboy settles old scores and returns to the game of poker, which has given him everything he ever wanted but exacted a steep price along the way.From his meteoric rise to the top of the poker world to his equally stunning fall from grace, the Schoolboy learns the hardest lesson of all: Some hands should never be played. Set in seedy back rooms and glamorous casinos, in locations as varied as Chicago, Miami, Mexico and Las Vegas, the novel features a colorful and eccentric cast of characters.Among the many compelling characters youll meet are Gentleman Billy Hodges, the dapper Cockney card sharp who has a clear vision of pokers future and is determined to play a an important role in it, Ann Wrobleski, the woman who means everything to the Schoolboy, and Ronnie Pardo, youngest of the Pardo crime family who dreams of a life beyond the mean streets until an unspeakable act of violence changes his destiny.
