Lagniappe: The face of a good poker player

"I haven't told you everything about this woman."

"Yes, I am aware."

"Surprised, I said, "You are? How?"

"What do they call the face of a good poker player?"

"A poker face," I said.

"Yes, I believe that is correct. You do not have one. ..."
Dean Koontz, The City
I'm really enjoying this book and one of the great pleasures in it is the relationship between the young narrator and his neighbor, Mr. Yoshioka.
