By |April 10th, 2016|Books|

  ALL ON ZERO – ARGIRO MANTOGLOU More often than not, a casino story will tell the tale of a man, gambling everything he has and risking it all before becoming the hero at the end of the book. With “All On Zero” this is not the case at all- mainly due to the fact [...]

Review (abstract): White Revenge from newspaper “Kathimerini”

By |February 20th, 2016|Χωρίς κατηγορία|

Chapter 1 [ADVENTURE OF ZERO] If you are afraid of the wolf, don't go into the forest, says an old Russian proverb. Dawn repeated this saying many times during the day, feeling as if it gave meaning to her every movement. She whispered it as she deleted yet another phone message from her ex; said [...]

Chapter One   The Phone call   Brixton, March 1996, 2:00 a.m. Night doesn't scare me. It never did. I like to walk back home. To walk till I have exhausted all the roads one by one. I like to hear my footsteps on the pavement; to count the lighted windows; to pass the unlit [...]
