According to legend, Wild Bill Hickok was shot to death in the middle of a poker game with 2 pairs: black aces and black eight's. Noone knows for sure what the kicker was, but from then on black aces and eight's has been called dead man's hand. This month’s challenge was to find, read and review a book with a playing card on the cover.I managed to find a couple in my local library, neither of which I knew much about, and after much debating, I decided to pick up Dead Man’s Hand by George R.R. Martin & John J. Miller – the seventh book in the Wild Cards series, which the internet assured me was understandable even without having.
