KIRKUS REVIEW

Of interest to those who have memories of Monte Carlo, of Homburg, etc. and for those who like curious bits of history. For this is the story of those two gambling resorts, and particularly of the amazing personality of Francois Blanc and his twin brother, Louis, posthumous sons of a poor tax collector, and cursed with the gambling fever. A story of politics, intrigue, blackmail; much of human interest; great names flash across the pages.
