Tom Corcoran, a gambler by profession and a cheat by inclination, slept with one eye open the night after that blackjack game. He was right to be wary. Into his hotel room an assassin crept, hired by the man he had embarrassed at the table. And Tom was ready.

What he was not ready for were the screams for help and the charge of attempted murder that the intruder lodged with the police.

Corcoran, the intended victim, was now Corcoran the accused—and he was about to learn that in San Pablo a gambler can win once too often!—Goodreads. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Faust, Frederick Schiller

Author Image

Frederick Schiller Faust aka Frank Austin, George Owen Baxter, Walter C Butler, George Challis, Evan Evans, Frederick Faust, John Frederick, Frederick Frost, David Manning, Peter Henry Morland, Max Brand...

Max Brand, one of America's most popular and prolific novelists and author of such enduring works as Destry Rides Again and the Doctor Kildare stories, died on the Italian front in 1944.

“No pulp writer was more prolific than Frederick Faust, who wrote nearly 15 million words under the pen name of Max Brand and seventeen others. He sold all his stories and sometimes wrote complete issues of Western Story Magazine. But Faust's most famous character was not a Western hero but a doctor—Dr. Kildare—who inspired a film of the same name plus fifteen sequels and a television series starring Richard Chamberlain.” (The Incredible Pulps: A Gallery of Fiction Magazine Art, c. 2006, p. 11).
