On assignment from Harper's Magazine, McManus was sent to Las Vegas to cover the trial of Rick Tabish and Sandy Murphy, who were accused of murdering Binion's Horseshoe casino executive Ted Binion. The trial coincided with the 2000 WSOP, which McManus entered. He won a satellite tournament into the Main Event, and reached the final table, placing fifth. The book is a two-track memoir of his coverage of the trial interspersed with and finally subsumed by the poker tournament.
