    What do I think I think this book should be required reading for every war monger politician on earth I think the players in the department of nuclear weaponry should line up their own sons and send them to a strange country to live for a year when they are 18 years old I think this book is a masterpiece of truth and I commend the author Doug Depew for the guts to tell it like it was I can t say any, so I recommend you read this take on our military secrets and the experience of young boys who are asked to do something grown men avoid like a plague It will keep you and then change you when you finish reading it.

    Carla Shawcross has had the deck stacked against her in life Her mother is dead so is her relationship with her father and soon, her only real friend will be But, Carla has a few cards up her sleeve For not only is she physically a diamond in the rough with green eyes and blond hair waiting to be preened to prettiness but Carla can play cards high stakes poker, specifically And when she wins consecutive games against reputed multi millionaire cardsharp Fat Yang, Carla is not only in the money but on the map as a force to be reckoned with in the poker world But Carla s weakness for money something she s never had in spades clouds her judgement The girl who can read anyone s bluff can t read a ruse that will engulf her and drag her from the slums into a dangerous game of international intrigue.Author Roy Stolworthy crafts a wonderfully twisted noir tale that is populated with a cast of low lifes seeking to rise to and remain at the topat any cost It is driven by hard hitting heroine Carla Shawcross The epitome of anti heroism, with a hair trigger temper and foul mouth that make her hard to like But, she is a shade likable than Fat Yang Stolworthy s designated villain oozes pure evil at every page turn Ken Morris, the pretty boy casino manager, is but a puppet dancing from one of Fat Yang s many strings, as is Yang s daughter May Ling though she hides a dragon lady s desire beneath her innocent demeanor Even the law is tarnished, with a shoddy MI 5 operative named Dooley a lampoon of the randy nature of James Bond whose lust leads him to penetrate the wrong part of Fat Yang s organization.Speaking of James Bond, while All In retains its grittiness, in terms of place it rises from the typically local street level of most noir novels to Ian Fleming like surroundings When Carla accepts a lucrative offer to play cards on the international circuit, Ken becomes sort of her handler He advises her to slim down and dress up to virtually assume a Bond Girl air in order to distract players and win the pot for her sponsor The poker match with a reprehensible African warlord aboard a yacht is cinematic spy stuff for certain Stolworthy s shift in place not only provides a suspenseful plot than just playing poker, but it provides the characters with the requisite light at the end of the tunnel As Fat Yang s ruse unravels from London to Paris to Ireland and beyond, the cast particularly Carla and Ken become sympathetic as they struggle for some measure of redemption and revenge But Stolworthy doesn t make it easy, as he changes the focus so that what might be a guiding light out suddenly blinds Carla and Ken bringing them instead towards a climactic card game in Monte Carlo with an astronomical amount of loot to be won.All told, All In is suspenseful noir at its finest Full of blunt force prose, deliberate pacing, and sinful descriptions It is, at its sold out soul, a tale full of irony and dark humor perhaps the funniest thing being that while everyone constantly competes against each other for the upper hand, gaining it might cost them their heads
