Description: James Swain, who came to his expertise on gambling hustles by way of his skills as a sleight-of-hand magician, uses the crooked play of these inspired cheats to pull us into Grift Sense, a flashy, funny novel about a cool scam to break the bank at a Las Vegas casino. Misanthropic ex-cop and freelance "grifter hunter" Tony Valentine is called in to find swindler Frank Fontaine, who vanished leaving Nola Briggs, a blackjack dealer caught on camera helping him cheat, to take all the heat.

“I don’t remember how I discovered Swain, but his writing pulled me in. He gives you an insider’s look into gambling and crimes in casinos and explains it in a way that is entertaining and enlightening. Highly addictive, I couldn’t wait to read more about Tony Valentine.” ~ Wanda Clarke
