Unputdownable.....as they say

What a fantastic read! Ben Mezrich is a such a skilled writer - okay, he was given a great story, but he made the main character, Semyon Dukach, totally sympathetic rather than arrogant and conceited as I thought he might be and the romantic sub-plot between him and Allie was intriguing. In fact, I would have liked the book to be longer and learned more about the casino trips that didn't end in trouble. Easy to read and fascinating.
