Between cross-country practice, playing poker and running a high-stakes gambling operation, and keeping the NCAA committee at arm's length, Jim Money has a full schedule. No problem, Jim is young, smart, ambitious and operates on Red Bull and dedication. He's making money, puts his friends on payroll, and life is great.
Officer Jack Seal walks into Jim's illicit operation.
Jim Money is BUSTED.
Officer Seal makes no arrests. Instead of calling for backup, he goes in with Bill and Thomas --two hard men who don't share their last names and who aren't on the police force. They decide that its more profitable to play both sides of the law and extort the college kid in exchange for a get out of jail free card.
BUSTED is a prequel to the Jim Money Stories (Bon Appétit, Escape, On the Run, and James) that dates back to Jim Money's college days when he was an up-and-coming distance runner on scholarship at Southern Illinois University. Balancing school and 10-mile runs with running his illegal gambling operation, Jim Money and his friends Frank and Steve must grow up fast, or else his next race will be out of Carbondale, Illinois and possibly to a prison sentence, or the grave.
Will Jim and his friends find a way to keep his gambling operation alive while keeping themselves off the police and the NCAA officials' radar? Let's see what rouge Officer Seal and his cohorts have to say about that.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Former professional poker player Glenn Gamble is an author from Chicago, IL who doesn't have one of those inspiring stories where he goes to the state penitentiary to discover his gift for writing amazing stories. Instead, he worked on his craft during long romantic dates at Starbucks and Panera Bread with his laptop and a story. His inspiration came from friends who encouraged him to pursue his dreams to become a writer. Without a prison sentence, Gamble has managed to pen A Thousand Chances, Bon Appetit, Escape, On the Run, James, and Busted; and is currently writing future installments of both the Jim Money and Darius Blaylock Poker Series.
In his spare time, Gamble likes to watch Chicago Bulls games, drop twitter bombs from the sky, slam facebook with status updates, and bet on low-stakes rat and roach races taking place in various public housing project apartments across the United States.
