Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This novel based on the 2013 World Series of Poker is an excellent read. The futuristic setting was amazing. Even someone who knows little to nothing about poker will find this novel exciting and very entertaining. There were great transitions throughout the novel intertwining the past and the present. This novel includes everything you would want in a novel; suspense, excitement, mafia, and murder. I wish I were reading it again for the FIRST time.
