“An international political thriller that successfully weaves together multiple storylines. . . electrifying. . . A well-paced and timely novel.”

Kirkus Reviews

“What do you get when you mix a high-stakes poker game, a #MeToo accusation, and a highly volatile political situation featuring the murder of an American journalist in a country under fire for human rights abuses? Author Dan Schorr would say it is a recipe for a mind-blowing thriller titled Final Table.”

Novels Alive

“A fascinating, intense, fast-moving thriller about international politics, major tournament poker, toxic social media, and high-profile sexual misconduct accusations…. The novel covers a myriad of events across the globe with compelling, unexpected plot twists, original characters, and engaging, entertaining poker hand analysis.”

Card Player

“This is a high-stakes political story…a great purchase for all collections as it tackles some relevant political issues, the Me Too movement, and the growing incredibility of popular social platforms.”

Library Journal

“A captivating read and a suspenseful journey with a powerful payoff…. The disparate worlds of high-stakes gambling and international politics are artfully stitched together by writer Schorr, who commands obvious real-world expertise in both arenas. On every page, we’re treated not only to the credible true-to-life narrative but perceptive insights into what causes people to do what they do and act the way they act….What we observe through these imperfect characters is the essence of our own souls and the discovery of what makes us all tick.”
