'It was just George's luck, walking out of te gambling club with two and a half grand in his pocket straight into a punch-up with tow of Manoukian's heavies - but somehow he couldn't just stand by and watch them waste a croupier as good-looking as Margaret Ainslie!
And maybe it was just luck that Margaret knew all about his Riviera assignment to find out how and why so many covergirls went missing in casino-land. But when there's that much luck around someone has to be fixing the cards, and as the options close and the stakes rise George realises he's going to need more than luck to win the final trick in The French Deal.'
