RARA-AVIS: Block/Westlake Poker Novel

From: Roy Epstein ( dortmunder2@yahoo.com)

Okay, I've been wondering this for years and if anybody knows, it'll be one of you folks:

In his introduction to a Lawerence Block short story collection (Like a Lamb to Slaughter), Joes Gores writes about how Block, Westlake, Brian Garfield, and Justin Scott used to get together in the 60's for poker nights. During one of these games they apparently wrote a novel together. They would take turns sitting in the back room and each one would type one chapter (only reading the previous page of the last chapter)! They wrote the whole thing in one night. Gores says that the book was published as a paperback original but does not give the title or any other info about it. Does anybody know anything at all about this book? If nothing else, it would be interesting to find out exactly what name it was published under.
