FUNNY MONEY, by James Swain
The tip of the iceberg - other than the trio of thugs trying to rough up Tony's boy - are another trio, of Croatian cardsharps who are running a million-dollar scam on a casino whose owner is everything you always hated in a human being. And there's his old sensei, and there's a gorgeous female wrestler, and a trio of gorgeous, savvy young women called The Mod Squad...it's a great read. Swain's got the chops to pull off all the casino and how-to-cheat talk, he's not only a magician but a renowned poker player. It's a 4.
For some odd reason (gasp), the author has no web site.
