 Joel Townsley Rogers


Lucky Costovain was a cadís cad. He was handsome, lucky and had gotten away with murder. But one night at the casino he had the astonishingly bad luck to roll twelve boxcars in a row and he found himself off on a rollercoaster of deceit and betrayal. But just as heís about to succumb to the dice-throwing fates, he hears about a fortune buried in a remote cave in Trinidad and heís off on a journey to his destinyóruled over by the black-hooded caster of doom, Lachesis. This 1946 novel by the iconoclast Joel Townsley Rogers is a masterpiece of pulpdom and Ramble House is proud to bring it back for the first time in over 50 years.
