Earl Beale never could get things right. Not when he was a college basketball player shaving points. Not even after he got out of prison. It seemed as though luck was against him, no matter how hard he tried.

Earl is now selling used cars and living with a woman who makes her living as a rich man's girlfriend, but comes home to Earl. Life goes fairly smoothly for a while until some characters from his past appear -- and once again Earl is in trouble.

"Higgins achieves effects outside the scope of any other living novelists. He is a writer of genius." (The Washington Post)
