From the time I was a little girl I've played cards and loved a little gambling. My dad taught both my sister and I how to play every kind of poker at our kitchen table on Sunday nights. To this day, we all still play together and apart, so I knew this book would be fun and feel familiar.
Fortunately, you don't need to know a thing about cards to love Maud, her acerbic wit, her unapologetic posture and her nimble mind. Maud is a 56 year-old badass who has had enough.
This story opens with Maud walking into The Four Seasons, shooting a prominent member of society and walking out. We always know Maud is the shooter but as the book unfolds we learn why she did it...and boy, what a story.
This is a cutting, gossipy romp and I loved the brilliant characterizations and very clever plot.
I enjoyed this book so much and I recommend it highly!
