All twelve-year-old Ricky Davis wants to do is play stickball with his friends and flirt with the building supers daughter. But when his father crosses gangster Nathan Glucksman and goes into hiding, Ricky has to take over his fathers bookie business and figure out a way to pay back his debt-before the gangsters make good on their threats.

Meanwhile, Rickys mother, Pearl, a fading beauty of failed dreams, plots to raise the money by embezzling funds from one of her bosss clients: Elizabeth Taylor. Fast-paced, engrossing and full of heart, The Bookies Son paints the picture of a family forced to decide just how much theyre willing to sacrifice for each other-and at what cost.
