Overview

In this fast paced international suspense thriller, Nick Donahue, an American gambler living in London, is in Venice playing Blackjack when he meets a beautiful woman in desperate need of help. Nick obliges and is soon embroiled in a whirlwind of adventure, mystery, and intrigue.

He is kidnapped by jewel thieves, then released and dumped in the woods outside Prague. Calling on his brother Alex, a banker at a Zurich bank, for assistance, Nick soon finds himself juggling Alex's problem: the murder of his boss and a world-wide money laundering scheme the bank has been running. When Nick blows the whistle on the bank, its main client, the New York mob, is none too happy with his interference and their loss of revenue. They demand revenge and restitution, which only Nick, with all of his gambling savvy, can provide.

This contemporary mystery novella provides plot twists and terror, action and adventure, revenge and romance, and just the right touch of humor.

In this international thriller, author, Cathi Stoler does it again, she captures the sophistication of the high life, this time the gambling world of European casinos, accented with the beauty of various languages and beautiful  people. In this story, man of the world, handsome, Nick Donahue, finds himself, beaten, and dumped on the side of the road in his black dress suit, and riding with a bunch of cabbages in the back of a truck. The intriguing beginning launches a must read story and a fascinating character. Readers are left wanting more.

A clever thriller with snappy dialogue, believable characters, and a can’t-put-it-down pace. Every time I thought I knew what was really going on, there was yet another plot twist. A must-read for thriller-lovers.
