An Ace of a Book

An interesting subject I know zilch about–playing cards. I don’t understand poker, bridge, whatever other games are played with those interesting things full of hearts, spades, diamonds, and clovers. But I must be in the minority, because there are apparently loads of books with a playing card theme or motif–with various authors either expounding on how to win at the games, or using the lure of cards as intrigue.

And naturally, my favorite place for interesting tidbits on books, ABE has a few cool titles to peruse, and ponder. I wonder which has the winning hand?
