Judge Leonard Kurtz presides over a Saturday-night poker game fifty weeks each year.
But this is no ordinary game--it begins at precisely seven p.m. and lasts exactly twelve hours,
and to sit at the table, each of the six players must have ten-thousand dollars in cash. But then, on
a warm summer night, five players are brutally murdered, victims of a single gunshot wound to

The starting date of the fourth volume of Julie Coleman's pioneering history marks the appearance of the most influential slang dictionary of the twentieth century, Eric Partridge's Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, produced at a time when the Depression had broken down traditional working-class communities; the United States was a still-reluctant world power; and another world war was inevitable. If the First World War unsettled combatants' minds, the second unsettled society. It challenged values around the world and, as the author shows, offered new opportunities for vibrant self-expression.
