The Telephone Booth Indian by A. J. LieblingA classic work on Broadway sharpers, grifters, and con men by the late, great New Yorker journalist A. J. Liebling.

Loaded Dice

Loaded Dice by James SwainSwain's fourth Tony Valentine novel (after 2003's Sucker Bet) starts out on a wacky, breezy note, but the horror of a threatened terrorist attack that develops in a subplot jars in a tale centered on the seedy world of gambling and more mundane crimes like (non-mass-) murder and robbery. Tony Valentine, a retired Atlantic City cop who helps gambling casinos catch swindlers, travels to Las Vegas to show three casino owners how blackjack players use a new high-tech device to cheat. He's also checking up on his feckless son Gerry, in town to learn about illegal card-counting so he can join Tony's...

Sucker Bet

Sucker Bet by James Swain

A hardened ex-cop with great instincts, a sharp eye, and a short fuse, Tony Valentine still catches crooks, but a very special breed of them. He nabs hustlers who rob casinos, and finds the fatal flaw that allowed the place to get ripped off in the first place. Sometimes that means biting the hand that feeds him, but Valentine isn't paid to sugarcoat the cold, hard truth. Along flashy strips and in seedy dives, if there's a game to be fixed, Valentine knows how to spot the tricks, the scams, the sleight of hand. And with his new case, there's definitely more on the table than meets the eye....

Winning Golf and Poker's Mind Game

Winning Golf and Poker's Mind Game by John GallagherOn the surface golf and poker seem to be two disparate entities with very little in common. However, the contents of Book 1 (golf) and Book 2 (poker) details and demonstrates that both are similar in many ways with the most important element being the sharing of mental attributes essential for initial and on-going consistent success. Both activities also provide ego-satisfaction along with supplying the challenge of attempting to bridge the gap between the actual competitor and the imagined competitor.
