"All in, Sinatra" is a novel that revolves around Génesis Montesinos, a 64-year-old Frank Sinatra fan and literature professor at a Mexican university. His career plan has been fulfilled: he has a PhD and a job. But, he's also absolutely bored. So, he decides to travel to Las Vegas to gamble away everything he has, and end his insipid life. However, he ends up winning fifty-three thousand dollars. Not knowing what to do with this small fortune, he begins to squander it on clothes, records, alcohol, a session in a shooting range, a new smartphone, and pancakes and bacon. His suicide plans begin to blur, especially after he meets Lea. However, much more than money is at stake on the Las Vegas poker tables, and chance, or destiny, will put the professor at the heart of darkness.
