Gods and mortals alike succumb to gambling fever aboard the Peace of Boona on its yearly baccarat cruise, and would-be lovers Max and Eleanor, children of two of the game's celebrated fixtures, are alternately seduced and repulsed by the frenzy. From up above, Kronos, Apollo and other celestial powerhouses dabble in earthly matters as the Titan Argus competes with the mortal D.A. Holon for the strumpet La Petite's love in Mark Broderick's madcap first book, Baccarat: Nine Lives South of Boona.
