Frank Dixon’s first novel, Plague Boy, is sinking into oblivion on Amazon, and neither his?nor anyone else’s?literary agent will return his calls. Then Frank discovers online poker, and is soon addicted to the rush he feels as the successful, popular “Chip Zero.” But as he wins thousands of dollars, it soon becomes clear that his internet success is not the solution to his problems. And when the virtual world comes crashing in on Frank’s real life, it can only mean trouble.

display_description When Frank Dixon, a frustrated novelist, decides to dabble in online poker, he discovers a lucrative stream of income and the esteem, wealth, excitement and even love that his normal life lacks. Frank takes the name of "Chip Zero" and makes a new set of friends, all of whom are caught up in the freedome of their cyber existence. But something bad and very surprising will happen when Frank finds these friends are flesh and blood and when he mixes the fantasies of his brave new world with the reality of his own day-to-day existence.
