Sample text

We went to casinos in Deauville, Trouville, Nice and other French towns and invariably we had to come home sooner than we planned because our money had run out. Fair enough. One goes into a gaming salon perfectly well aware that it is a jungle where welfare-state safety nets do not exist. That is the main attraction of gambling, the exposure to genuine drama.

Never having opened the book since the day I’d bought it in Boscombe Arcade, I sat down to read it there and then. I was still reading it at three the next morning. Lord Beresford, whoever he might have been, was no harebrained crackpot.
