Deadman's Poker (Tony Valentine Series #6) by James Swain

Tony Valentine is an expert at spotting cheats. He’s tossed them out of gambling casinos from Atlantic City to Las Vegas and Monaco. But though Tony has never met a scam he couldn’t crack, his son and partner, Gerry, has just walked into one with a body count.

What started with a conman’s deathbed confession turns into a deadly Las Vegas grudge match during the world’s biggest poker tournament. While Gerry and his shady friends tangle with the Vegas mob, Tony enlists the aid of an aging grifter who’s fleecing suckers with a dazzling array of improbable betting stunts. Tony’s been hired to save the tournament (and stop a blind player who’s out to heist it), while Gerry’s just trying to stay alive–now that murder is in the cards.

Featuring insider tips for catching poker cheats, as well as a glossary of card hustler terms!

Tony Valentine is a well defined character. I have read all of the books featuring him after picking up "Funny Money" while browsing. Swain's characters are fun, entertaining and believable. There is more to gambling that meets the eye and the tutorial is always present.

Really good. This would be a great movie. I don't know how the author keeps comming up with these cons, but they are very clever. Great read. BH Ft Lauderdale Fl
