A royal flush of brand new poker tales from fifteen of the world's best crime-writers - including a Harry Bosch novella from Michael Connelly.With contributions from Michael Connelly, Alexander McCall Smith, Walter Mosley, Joyce Carol Oates, Jeffery Deaver, & Peter Robinson, this is the best hand of crime short stories you will ever be dealt.Taking their inspiration from the card game that's more a way of life than an innocent pastime, there are no stories here that you'll want to sit out. Here are tales of games you'll wish you were part of . . . and games that you'd go to the ends of the Earth to avoid being dealt into.
