An ambitious gambler may lose it all in this novel by an Edgar Award–winning “superlative storyteller” (Publishers Weekly).
He was known as Cully the Arm—the best crapshooter in Chicago. Life was a game of both skill and luck, and he’d made his way to the big city seeking his chance to be a winner.
Before long he was moving between bars, backrooms, brothels—anywhere a man could gamble. Then he met a seductive woman named Lorry, who was playing a game of her own, and she wasn’t about to let any rules get in her way . . .The inspiration for the film The Big Town, The Arm is a hard-edged crime novel that captures the gritty atmosphere of mid-twentieth-century Chicago as one man’s pursuit of a dream leads him into a nightmare.
