Synopsis
Audrey Unger hasn’t seen her father since she was a child. A professional poker player and compulsive gambler, he left home when she was eleven years old and disappeared from her life for good. Now in her early thirties and poised on the edge of her own mid-life crisis, she makes the decision to try and find him. To discover what it was that made him gamble. To discover what drove him to give her up. Big Louie is the key to her father’s world. An agoraphobic, card playing, Hans Christian Anderson sized giant, who hasn’t left his flat in over three years. Fighting a battle with his own phobias, he takes Audrey on a journey of self discovery. He guides her through the subtleties of professional poker; the thrill of high stakes gambling; and on towards a final hand of cards that will change both of their lives for good.

    Just to let you know that my local Borders store (in the UK) had Louise's new book 'The Big Blind' on the shelves on Saturday (26th July).

    Naturally, I picked up a copy and I'm well in to it :-)

    Might be worth checking your local store to see if they've also jumped the 4th August official release date.

    (Vu: Currently Amazon.co.uk has three in stock.)
