One-time socialite Maud Warner bluffs her way into a signature New York restaurant on a sunny October day. When she walks out again, a man will have been shot; it's all part of Maud's pursuit of celebrity accountant Burt Sklar, the man she believes stole her mother's fortune and left her family in ruins. She's a tough lady at the card table, and in this winner of the 2019 Dashiell Hammett Prize for Literary Excellence in Crime Writing, Maud is playing a deadly game of poker. The stakes? To take down her enemies and get justice for their victims. Her success depends on her continuing ability to pull off the biggest bluff of her life—and on who will fold.
