About this product
- DescriptionTony Valentine has a gift for grift: He can walk into a casi and spot a cheater across a crowded floor. A man who still uses pay phones and won't spend more than a buck for coffee, Tony has protected Atlantic City gambling palaces for twenty years and learned every trick of the trade--until a new one blows him away. With his old partner murdered in a bomb blast, Tony returns to A.C. to retrace Doyle Flanagan's last case. Investigating a six-million-dollar casi takedown, a square cop soon meets a whole lot of bent people, from a beautiful lady wrestler to some Manhattan mobsters; from a trio of beautiful casi consultants to a team of Eurotrash blackjack card counters. But while everyone around Tony Valentine (including Tony's own son) is playing some kind of angle, Tony is determined to find a killer who is playing for keeps. . . .
