Summary
"Seventy-three years young, Axel Speeter has carved out a nice little life for himself. He owns his own business (a taco concession at the Minnesota State Fair), he lives comfortably at a Motel 6 (with his very own big-screen TV), he has two fine women working for him (Sophie Roman and her spectacularly endowed daughter, Carmen), and he has squirreled away a collection of Folgers coffee cans containing a total of $260,000 in cash - his life savings."--BOOK JACKET. "Back in the old days, Axel and his buddies - the crusty Sam O'Gara and the diminutive Tommy Fabian - made their living as gamblers, crisscrossing the American West in Axel's '56 Lincoln, driving from one card game to the next. These days, Sam makes his living as a backyard mechanic, Tommy owns a mini-donut concession, and Axel sells tacos. Not as exciting or glamorous as life on the road, but Axel is content. He's had enough excitement, he figures. Time to settle down."--BOOK JACKET. "Sophie Roman, his sometime lover, also seeks stability - but her pill-popping, mildly larcenous daughter, Carmen, craves excitement. And when Carmen meets a skinhead ex-convict named James Dean, she finds it - and more."--BOOK JACKET. "As the Minnesota State Fair opens, Carmen and James Dean set their sights on Axel's coffee cans."--BOOK JACKET. "Axel, Sam, and Tommy soon learn that they have a few more hands to play before they can settle down."--BOOK JACKET. "By the last day of the fair, one of them will be dead."--BOOK JACKET
