“NOBODY LIVES FOREVER

Doc Ganson's career has bottomed out, but he has a plan for the perfect con-a rich widow, ripe for the plucking. All he has to do is convince the big guy, Jim Farrar, to take her on. But Farrar is growing tired of the grifter's life. And he certainly doesn't want to have anything to do with a lowlife like Doc. He misses his life back in Florida, and crazy redhead Tony. But his lawyer, Johnny Doyle, talks him into it. Then Farrar meets the mark, Mrs. Halversen, and old habits take over. He charms her in spite of himself. Meanwhile, Doc is growing impatient. He doesn't trust Farrar. And when Doc doesn't trust someone, there's hell to pay. TOMORROW'S ANOTHER DAY
Everyone admires Lonnie and his carefree attitude. He seems to be born lucky, particularly at cards. He even wins Ballard's restaurant in a card game. Which is where he meets Mary. She's with the Greek, the only one of the gamblers who doesn't admire Lonnie. In fact, the Greek resents him. And when Lonnie snatches Mary away from him-and marries her, no less!-his resentment turns to plans of revenge. Lonnie used to be quite a risk-taker, but under Mary's influence, he puts all that behind him. Until the perfect scheme arrives. How could he know that behind this gamble is the Greek's vindictive retribution?” #73114
