Brady Moore about this book: Pokerface is an original action-drama and crime thriller set in the backdrop of 2030's Las Vegas. It follows the intertwining lives of a host of colorful characters each with lofty aspirations and even more intense secrets: "Boxman" Jack, a budding casino owner and subsequent mob middleman. "Blind" Pollack, Jack's humbly loyal assistant and casino Vice-President. "Railbird" Bloodgood, an ex-con and casino bouncer. "Snake Eyes" Anzari, a Vegas restaurateur moonlighting as a mob consigliore. "French" Asimov, a ruthless mob kingpin. "Shill" Moss, the city's most imperishable cop. "Roulette" Anzari, a mob wife and aspiring singer. And a pair of rogue killers named Luckie and Gamble.
Inspired by 1940s Las Vegas culture as well as some of the greatest mob and noir classic films of our generation, Pokerface is a mysterious adventure that will keep you guessing at each turn of the page. Each chapter provides its own short story while also adding a piece of the overall Pokerface puzzle to come together for a heart pounding climax that will leave you wanting more. It is an action-filled, thought provoking thrill ride built for the lovers of crime fiction but filled with romance and humor for all types of readers.

This is a must read. It is a well written, riveting story. The author does an excellent in vividly portraying the characters and effectively intertwining each character to present an excellent story.

Also, think the book would present well as a movie. Way to go Brady Moore, excellent book. I recommend to everyone. [by Igor03]
