Their relationship is fierce and unstable and forever at the mercy of a life lived on the edge. Opportunity knocks for Myron when a high stakes poker game is arranged giving him the chance to silence his father’s ghost, and finally step away from the only world he has ever known. However, the con’s man game is always at the mercy of fate and Myron finds himself face to face with the present danger of his greatest con, and his spotted past lurking just around the corner.
