What to expect

This hard-boiled tale from A. W. Gray takes its title from its hero, con artist and poker player Sizemore Brandon, a gentle if criminal giant and sidekick to Pecos Jimmy, a Dallas racketeer majoring in gambling. When Size is called to testify against his boss, Jimmy decides the time has come to dispense with his services permanently.

The stakes are high, and Size will have to play his cards right if he is to come out on top in the seamy underbelly of Texas.

Listen to a sample

“Dope dealers, shysters, hookers, a corrupt lawyer, a used car salesman, and assorted small-time hoods are among the low-lifers who swagger through this vividly realistic trip across the seedy underbelly of Texas. Gray…weds hard-boiled dialogue to slam-bang action in a very busy plot that unfolds in fits and starts like a poker game, full of devious twists and bluffs.”
