Having long gotten through life by running small-time cons, Lucy dreams up a profitable voodoo-laced scam that soon finds her running afoul of a criminal gang boss and his crew. When she dares to testify against a killer, Lucy’s life starts to spiral out of control. With friends on both sides of the law and a drug gang who wants her dead, can Lucy scheme her way out of danger and into the life she’s always dreamed of?

Tales of Lady Luck

Tales of Lady Luck are stories during my twenty-five years in the gaming business.

The opportunity I had in 1975 was enormous. There were no casinos on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, and nothing in Louisiana other than horse racing.

They loved to hear the stories, and at times, they were part of the story. The problems, demands, and things that went wrong are just too crazy to dream up.

Based on true events.
