A High Stakes Game of Life and Death in New Novel Dealing with Texas Hold’Em

July 18, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Sherman, Texas – A strange and diverse gamblers meet in the game of poker in a Vegas casino. Combine a New York ad man on his third strike, a young woman running from a treacherous past, an FBI agent with serious gambling issues, the would-be founder of the Las Vegas Greensox, and a big-bosomed black widow looking for unhealthy husbands; throw in Mikey “Don’t Call Me Cheeso” Mozzarelli and his two unfortunate assistants, and you’ll be all-in at a high stakes Texas Hold’Em table that will convince you that cards are war, disguised as a game.

You will find all these in Ron Uselton’s Lost Vegas, a novel that focuses on the lives of a group of gamblers playing for the biggest game of their lives and for their lives as well.

Uselton said, “Although the characters are purely fictional, you might recognize a friend or two in the melee. You can't live in Sherman as long as I have without encountering a few zany folks.”

Lost Vegas may be purchased directly through Xlibris Corporation or Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, Borders.com or through Baker & Taylor and Ingram Book Distribution.

“The book,” said Uselton, “has absolutely no redeeming literary value. It's also rated R for language (gangsters often use bad words). But, it's a fun read and I think people will enjoy it.”
