Book Description HTML

In the 1970s gambling in Massachusetts was taken out of the hands of hard working citizens called ‘bookies’ and put into the greedy, sticky mitts of the politicians in the form of a State Lottery. I always felt that somehow an honest crook like my local numbers guy was more on the 'up and up' than the people running the 'legal' numbers racket. Now as we get close to two decades into the 21st. century, I am more certain than ever, that I am right.Here then, with a full measure of cynicism is my tale of old school gambling, entitled: "Ten Dollars On The Nose".
