The real story of the capital's casinos. Starring, in no particular order, roulette, blackjack, chemin-de-fer, baccarat, punto-banco, poker, robbery of every shape and size, whoring, addiction,... More > sudden death, the lovely town of London, and lots of laughs. Laughing only stops when somebody gets killed. Meet the French Connection, the Cockney Frog, Golden Bollocks, Hashish, Lily the Pimp, the Dutch Girl, the Fat Man, Nick the Greek, Spanish *****, two pretty girls in an open sports car plying their trade in Curzon Street (an early example of buy one get one free), and the Mad Irishman. Not to mention Lewis Carroll, Augustus John and Salvador Dali (how did they get in here?). Take a walk on the sorry side of town. You might even wish that you'd been there with me. If you're a nice person I might even wish you'd been there too.

The Story of London Casinos from early days to the present time. Murder, robbery, addiction, whoring, bankruptcy, all the usual stuff. I was a croupier and a casino manager. Walk with me through the... More > graveyards and the retirement homes. You might even wish you'd been there with me, yesterday when I was young and the good times rolled. If you're old and rich all of London will be at your feet again. Curzon Street, Park Lane, Knightsbridge Green, Carlton House Terrace, Berkeley Square, Hamilton Place, will all come back to life. You might even remember the pretty girls who cruised Curzon Street in a sports car with the hood down until the local pimps threatened to kill them with razors. You might even remember fixing a price and following them back to their Belgravia flat. I'll keep quiet if you do. You can trust me. I'm a croupier.< Less
