The Prince of Dice

A novel by

The hard-knocking clarity of his prose is astonishing... Jack Engelhard is back, and in The Prince of Dice he dazzles us once again as he has in such novels as Indecent Proposal and The Bathsheba Deadline, to name but two of his works that testify to Engelhard's genius.

Who is Julian Rothschild? Julian is the star of Engelhard's Prince of Dice and from page one to the end you will love this guy.

He is a hero styled after the lonely gunman who comes to wipe out evil and save the town. Only Julian carries no guns. He carries a pair of dice.

These are his weapons. He is a gambler, but he is different. Julian has been blessed with a gift. He has the magic touch. He can't lose. Something happened when he found himself in the Sinai Desert. Something holy. His gambling, he feels, is directed by a Divine Hand.

Against a world that tries to bring him down, Julian must keep proving himself, until finally it's a matter of life or death.
