Jack Radney is a poker player with a history. And a fetish for keeping a rigid schedule.
Until one night he meets Beatrice, who has a highly unusual gift. But her ability doesn't work on Jack. Turns out he's a little bit...odd...himself. And in more than one way.
They leave the game together. Which just might be the worst idea either of them ever had.
