Monsieur X: The incredible story of the most audacious gambler in history 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Monsieur X is a fascinating story about the fabled French gambler set against the dramatic social and political backdrop of post-war France. The characters are well-researched and stylishly crafted by an author who clearly has a passion for his subject and a deep knowledge of racing and betting. The book cracks on a great pace with the reader riding the roller-coaster of emotions as the stories within have a cocktail of outcomes. Although it is based on betting and racing, Monsieur X is an accessible and compelling read for anyone who enjoys real history being brought to life in a no-holds-barred format.
