Good Things Happen to Good Players.
A work inspired by the legacy of the charismatic pro pool player, Saint Louie Louie Roberts, this tale of fiction brings together an unlikely hero and a young up and coming shooter, Val. With a plethora of spheres of influence, Val must choose between playing pool for money versus pool league. When he makes his decision to hustle pool, he loses part of his close family and friend’s respect. Now he must either make a killing off the sport, get rich, or lose everything he had growing up. Betraying his inner circle, Val’s pool playing skills are put to the test. The only thing stopping him is his own ego. And that might be just enough to cost him ‘everything.’ With hilarious references to the life of Louie Roberts and memorable dialogue, this novel is almost sure to bring a smile to your face. The mesmerizing way in which the characters interact and communicate brings this story to life and captures the times of the modern American pool scene. Even for those that have never held a cue, this story is going to leave a lasting impression.
