Publisher Description

Re-released to coincide with Abbott’s newest novel, Dare Me, this eBook edition of Queenpin also includes the original short story, "Policy," that the novel was based on.


A young woman hired to keep the books at a down-at-the-heels nightclub is taken under the wing of the infamous Gloria Denton, a mob luminary who reigned during the Golden Era of Bugsy Siegel and Lucky Luciano. Notoriously cunning and ruthless, Gloria shows her eager young protégée the ropes, ushering her into a glittering demimonde of late-night casinos, racetracks, betting parlors, inside heists, and big, big money. Suddenly, the world is at her feet--as long as she doesn't take any chances, like falling for the wrong guy. As the roulette wheel turns, both mentor and protégée scramble to stay one step ahead of their bosses and each other.

What a ripoff!

$10.99 for 192 pages?! I'm so sick of iBooks and their 10 installments of 1 book. This is upfront, at least. I'd rather use $30.00 in gas to find this at a library or thrift store. Unfortunately, I can't read old books, the smell makes me sick. AND so does this price gouging!

Megan Abbott can write. Her subject may not have what you’d call elevation, but she takes it to a pretty high level.
