Scott Adlerberg - Jack Waters - Signed

SIGNED.

Paperback original. 

It's 1904, and Jack Waters lives in New Orleans. He earns his money by playing poker. Through his gambling skill, he has a comfortable life, but one day he kills a man he catches cheating against him. On the run, he flees Louisiana, and he moves to an island in the Caribbean. It seems he will be able to resume his poker playing life, but he runs into problems with the island's rich and powerful. Frustrated, he joins a rebellion against the government. But his reason for joining the revolutionaries has nothing to do with politics. He has his own reason for joining the rebellion, based on revenge against someone high up in the country.

A story about a fanatical quest for justice, Jack Waters is a historical revenge tale that moves with the speed of a thriller.
