Praise for Bluff:

"As lithe and cunning as its characters, Michael Kardos's Bluff is a masterly exercise in narrative sleight of hand. This is suspense in its purest form--character-driven, immersive and hopelessly addictive. Prepare to be taken."--Megan Abbott, Edgar Award-winning author of You Will Know Me

"Michael Kardos is a master at ratcheting up the suspense, and Bluff combines poker, a brilliant con game, and two terrific women who run the show. If you haven't read Kardos yet, Bluff is the perfect place to start!"--Lisa Scottoline, bestselling author of Exposed

"Terrific writing, great characters, an insider's knowledge, and a killer plot with a leg-breaker of a twist. What are you waiting for? Buy this book."--Peter Blauner, author of Proving Ground and Slow Motion Riot

"Natalie is a sharp-witted survivor with a relatable self-sabotaging streak whose move into the dark world of card cheats climaxes with a spin worthy of the most adept con artists."--Booklist

"So exciting and thrilling--I loved this from the first line! Female card-sharp with a mysterious past gets drawn into life-changing heist. Smart and fun."--Mary Cotton, Newtonville Books, Newton, MA

"Engaging and interesting, with enough lore about magicians and gambling to give the story veracity without weighing it down."--Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
