Summary:
The Hallorans cheat at cards.

For generations they have known how to deal, when to fold, and how not to get hacked into corners. But Charlie Halloran, the most gifted young gambler in the family, is still playing in the kinds of games that can leave scars.

Now he is in Hawaii. He is in love. It is 1971, and he has a chance to break away -- if only he can ace at one more game with his father and brother on a beautiful old sailboat, where breathless possibility is finally palpable.

In this extraordinarily visual and suspenseful novel, we watch Charlie struggle against his birthright toward a place where people mean what they say, where honest emotion is part of the gamble, and where the threat to his heart can be more real than the threats to his life.  Read more...

Abstract:

The Hallorans cheat at cards.

For generations they have known how to deal, when to fold, and how not to get hacked into corners. But Charlie Halloran, the most gifted young gambler in the family, is still playing in the kinds of games that can leave scars.

Now he is in Hawaii. He is in love. It is 1971, and he has a chance to break away -- if only he can ace at one more game with his father and brother on a beautiful old sailboat, where breathless possibility is finally palpable.

In this extraordinarily visual and suspenseful novel, we watch Charlie struggle against his birthright toward a place where people mean what they say, where honest emotion is part of the gamble, and where the threat to his heart can be more real than the threats to his life.
