Clabe Polkabout this book: What if souls were saved or eternally damned based on random chance; the turn of a hand of cards in a poker game for example. A person could lose his soul based on the cheating of a card shark, a mere trick of the deal, or merely by simple fate. During the Great Cuban Hurricane of 1910, such a card game is said to have happened at the Schultz House Hotel in Punta Rassa, Florida.
It turns out that good and evil meet every time a natural disaster occurs to gamble for the victim's souls. For the Great Cuban Hurricane of 1910, that poker game occurred on a dark and stormy October night in a Florida hotel on a slender point of land isolated by the receding storm surge. The players were no strangers to each other. One of the onlookers held a vested interest in the outcome. Another makes a foolish bet that nearly cost him everything. Others watch, but soon lose interest in a struggle as old as the human race; the struggle between good and evil.
