Frank Dixon’s first novel, Plague Boy, is sinking into oblivion on Amazon, and neither his—nor anyone else’s—literary agent will return his calls. Then Frank discovers online poker, and is soon addicted to the rush he feels as the successful, popular “Chip Zero.” But as he wins thousands of dollars, it soon becomes clear that his internet success is not the solution to his problems. And when the virtual world comes crashing in on Frank’s real life, it can only mean trouble.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Judy Bart | 2/1/2014

    " From the sublime ( Henry James ), to this, the ridiculous. Don't even ask me where I found this, but it was a wonderful faux memoir romp about a down and out writer who finds online poker to be his salvation. It is witty, intelligent and written in modern vernacular, a very fast read and one that I really couldn't put down. Probably a boy's book, and I really don't see any of you reading it, but I swear, if you do you won't regret it! "

    " Online poker addiction wouldn't seem to make for a crackling good read, but this book was really enjoyable - smart, funny, engaging, and with a twist ending that I didn't see coming. "

    " What seemed clever on page 50 turned tedious and overwrought by page 180. "
