James Swain discusses his novel, “Loaded Dice.” He begins by explaining that this is the 5th book in the series that follows his character Tony Valentine, who catches people cheating at casinos. Swain says that after September 11, 2001, the FBI came to Las Vegas to investigate the security in casinos. He shares that he was a magician in the 1980s and knows a lot of scams and tricks. He discusses the ways that people cheat: hiding cards during blackjack, using chip cups, card counting, and switching dice. Swain shows several different card tricks, but says that the best cheaters never get caught. He ends the interview by talking about gambling addictions and how he did research for the book by attending Gamblers Anonymous meetings.
