The Gambling Man

Rory Connor has no equal on the gaming tables but he wants more than easy games and small rewards. Setting his sights on something much larger, he encounters the ruthless world of Frank Nickle with life-threatening results. Marriage to his childhood sweetheart Janie comes to a dramatic end. Refusing to heed the disapproval of society and his working class family, he marries the boss’s daughter. But two things stand in the way of his bright future: a ghost from the past and the sinister shadow of Nickle, who will stop at nothing to protect his own dark secrets….
