The Story

Economist Nation Jones knows the chips are down. His bookie father takes really bad bets, his precocious poker-playing teenage daughter is fleecing frat boys for big money and he’s losing his wife to an ambitious politician. But now Nation is playing a high-stakes game of his own, for the future and his family, and the bluffing has just begun.
