Summary

Eddie Lipson (52) is an out of sorts Elvis Impersonator at Paddy’s Wake, North London. An Irish bar run by the unhinged Patrick O’Donnell (67) along with his entrapped daughter, the dry but genial Lorna (27). Eddie longs to relive his Vegas glory days as a world champion poker player but is tied down by gambling debt and a commitment to an old friend.

Things complicate further when taken in by the duplicitous and passive-aggressive DCI Margret Dwan, who tricks Eddie into helping her bring down North London’s unlicensed casinos.
