Publisher's Summary

Dangerous Odds - a true crime thriller memoir - is the explosive, never-been-told, behind-the-scenes look into the world of illegal sports betting, revealed by an insider, who happens to be a woman. Marisa Lankester, a young beauty with a privileged New York upbringing, stumbles into the back door of the largest illegal sports betting organization in the US, run by Ron (The Cigar) Sacco. Marisa, a thrill-seeker, maneuvers herself into this mob-run men-only bookmaking operation, and with her looks and brains, becomes a trusted insider. Along the way, Marisa falls in love with Sacco's business partner, the charismatic Tony. In an attempt to evade the wrath of the FBI, Marisa and Tony relocate Sacco's operation from Los Angeles, first to Las Vegas, and then to the Dominican Republic where gambling is legal. What begins as a fun and exciting ride on the Caribbean island, where the tall, blonde beauty also becomes a top model, morphs into a twisted nightmare. It is also the romantic tale of a beautiful, smart young woman whose love for a charismatic and handsome Italian-American leads her down the road into crime, incarceration, and rape.

Dangerous Odds is the ultimate suspenseful mystery-thriller that draws the listener into the adrenaline-pumping world of sports gambling and betting.

Soon to be a Warner Bros. movie starring Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), produced by Film 360 (Game of Thrones).

    I love reading but don't have time so I just love audible because it gives me the chance to listen to great books when doing mundane tasks.

    "Fast Paced"

    I really enjoyed this story. I t was fast paced with lots going on and I very quickly got to know and like the central characters. it's not a happy or glamorous story. I found it a bit gruesome and depressing in places but it was interesting because it is based on truth.
