Author Julia Underwoodabout this book: Chris and Pete have been friends since they met in St Tropez in 1969.

In a momentous meeting in 1976 Pete, who has trained as a croupier, suggests that Chris joins a team of other croupiers to extract cash from a London West End casino.

They think of the enterprise as a victimless crime, but events prove that no crime goes unpunished.

If you are interested in gambling, people, and true stories, this may be a book for you.

I wrote this book because I once knew people who were in the position of the characters in the book. Their triumphs and tragedies stirred my interest and I felt compelled to write about them.

It took me two years to write the novel. I had some help from ex-croupiers that I know who took me through some of the finer points of blackjack and roulette. I have tried not to put too much detail of these into the book - not to overwhelm the reader with information - and have only put in those details that I think are essential for their enjoyment of the book. Apart from that I did little research because this is a time and environment with which I am very familiar and many of the characters are close to my heart.
