Lucky at Cards

Lawrence Block: Lucky at Cards (2016)

From the Publisher:
AT CARDS AND WITH WOMEN, BILL MAYNARD KNEW HOW TO CHEAT...yntY On the mend after getting run out of Chicago, professional cardsharp Bill Maynard is hungry for some action but not nearly as hungry as Joyce Rogers, the tantalizing wife of Bill's latest mark. Together they hatch an ingenious scheme to get rid of her husband. But in life as in poker, the other player sometimes has an ace up his sleeve...

When Lawrence Block wrote Lucky at Cards back in the 1960s, he published it under a pen name as a paperback original. Years later Hard Case Crime brought it back to life under Block's own name, and now we're able to include it in the Classic Crime Library.

"The plot twists here, then there, then back again, rooted in Block's strong characters and no-nonsense prose style," Publishers Weekly enthused, while Bill Ott in Booklist adds, "It's a doozy. Block unwinds his plot superbly, pointing toward a classic noir finale but then seeming to pull away -- or maybe not. And, along the way, there is all the teasing sexuality and tongue-in-cheek noir style that a pulp devotee craves."

This Classic Crime Library ebook edition of Lucky at Cards includes as a bonus the first chapter of the next book in the series, Killing Castro.
