I have been reading this series, and this is the second one. They are fun---maybe because the hero is "OF" like me, so I can relate to him.
Another good entry in this author's series. Good mystery, interesting tips on gambling and the behind the scenes look at Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
I thought it was silly, but others love it.
Very good and funny Tony Valentine book.
"Writing about a world where everyone is on the take, Swain has a soft spot for colorful characters. His direct style works just fine." -- The new York Times Book Review
"Smart, snappy, tremendously infectious." -- St. Petersburg Times
A fun book to read. -- Paul C.
This is the second book in this series.
I've found a new author to add to my series list. Swain has created a down to earth casino swindler investigator who is a "real" type of man. No phoniness here! Valentine calls them as he sees them, and usually he is the only one who sees how people are cheating the casinos. Add a gray haired neighbor lady who keeps him on his toes, a son that he doesn't get along with, an clever cons at the casinos and you're in for a delightful read!
This is a fun series, Tony Valentine is an ex-cop working for casinos to spot the cheaters but he always ends up in more trouble.
