AT CARDS AND WITH WOMEN, BILL MAYNARD KNEW HOW TO CHEAT

On the mend after getting run out of Chicago, professional cardsharp Bill Maynard is hungry for some action—but not nearly as hungry as Joyce Rogers, the tantalizing wife of Bill’s latest mark. Together they hatch an ingenious scheme to get rid of her husband. But in life as in poker, the other player sometimes has an ace up his sleeve...
