From Vince Van Patten, host of the World Poker Tour, and mystery writer Robert J. Randisi comes a novel of chilling murder and riveting poker suspense.
Just out of prison after ten years, professional poker player Jimmy Spain visits his wealthy former cellmate and listens to an offer he can't refuse. The rich man wants the ex-con to mentor his only child in the game of poker. In return, he'll set Jimmy up and pay all of his buy-ins on the poker tour. This deal looks like easy money, especially after Jimmy meets the kid-a cocky and abrasive young girl named Kat who has some good, yet raw, poker skills. Soon Jimmy and Kat enter a World Poker Tour tournament at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Things are coming up aces...until a player is found brutally slain with a Picasso flop-three picture cards-on his body. When suspicion points to Kat as the killer, it's up to Jimmy to find the real culprit-while fighting to remain in the tournament. As one ghastly murder after another knocks out other players, this hard-bitten veteran of the felt knows that in this cutthroat world of card sharks, someone could eliminate him-or Kat-for good!

I loved it and I'm waiting for the sequel! Not enough Las Vegas/gaming/poker mysteries out there. Keep writing!
