Item description for Sun City by Joseph Di Prisco...
Sun City is a tale of professional blackjack players and counters, set largely in Las Vegas and South Africa. The first strand of the story zeroes in on Dolly Leone, a gambler of unmatched proportions who is close to skipping town due to unpaid monies to his bookmaker.
As luck would have it, at this moment, Dolly uncovers the manuscripts of Valentino Comfort, a member of Dolly's old gambling circle---a team that made irreversible waves in worldwide casinos in the 1980's.
Under mounting pressure, Dolly gets the bright idea to patch together Val's philosophical and other scribblings into a presentable piece of work, hopefully to bring monetary profit into Dolly's hands.
Di Prisco brings to life a cast of eccentrics, including Dolly the gambler and scammer who might be a killer, Pasquale the big--money backer, Valentino Comfort (a.k.a. the Schoolboy), a philosophy minor, and Tess, sometimes called the Teaser.
