Reese and Bird's Monastery titles are regarded as the leading humorous bridge books. UNHOLY TRICKS is one of the funniest.
Unholy Tricks by Terence Reese and David Bird is a further collection of bridge tales involving the eccentric monks of St Titus.
In addition to their usual rubber bridge games - and they play for suprisingly high stakes at the monastery - the monks become involved in duplicate matches against nuns, visiting Italians and even the local police.
