Hard Time - At The Bridge Table
There was a loud mettalic thud as the outside door closed behind Timothy Newman. So this is my new home then, he thought. Prison, clink, the slammer. Prison is no place for an ordinary, law-abiding, middle class guy like me.
But it turns out that prison life in Great Yarborough has a silver lining for Tim - bridge. An expert player, he finds that his ability earns him unlooked-for respect amongst his fellow-prisoners, many of whom pass their 'time' at the card table. This is a bridge novel filled with unusual chracters and great deals - and a bridge game that gives new meaning to the term 'cutthroat'!
