While I expected this first entry in the CHANCE series to end up as a sort of MAVERICK knockoff, I was pleasantly surprised by the third chapter to see that I was wrong. Although the hero/featured character, Chance Sharpe, is, like the Maverick brothers, a professional gambler, his character is given a bit more depth and backstory than we ever receive for the television-series gamblers. I'd not heard of this 12-book series before, and after reading the first novel, I'm certainly going to be reading the rest. The author (Clay Tanner--a pseudonym of George Proctor) tells a well-paced, entertaining story with exciting action scenes and clever twists in a very readable style.
