The High had a couple of hit songs in the late '70s and now they're back playing the nostalgia circuit at casinos. The bass player, Barry, and the lead singer, Cliff, have found a way to make the tour worthwhile: rob the drug dealers and the shylocks that work every casino. Their old manager, Frank, now works one of their tour stops, and the guys decide to go for one big score and get the millions he swindled from them.
But extracting old debts isn't a simple transaction, and the rockers find themselves in the middle of a battlefield when the Saints of Hell bikers try to drive out the Philadelphia mobsters who've been running the casino.
Tumblin' Dice rolls with cops and mobsters, rock stars and bikers, in a gritty, absorbing tour through a criminal underworld that's thoroughly convincing.
