New World Gambles

by Leah R Cutter

Coming to Canada, the New World, to win his fortune was the first gamble Mei Quon took. Working in Victoria on a crooked game of fan tan, pleasing clients, instead of breaking his back with the railroad was the second.

Now, throwing in his lot with one of the tongs might be his biggest gamble yet.

Previously published in Fiction River: Past Crime.
