(The first book in the London Fiction series)
A novel by

Harryboy is lowlife, scum. But if he leaves the track after the 13th race quids in, everyone will say, "There goes Harryboy Boas, King o' the Track". This is an understated study of an East End Jewish gambler that deals subtly with the consuming guilt of those Jews who took no part in the war.
