For Detective Jake Daggers, 'formal attire' means spritzing his leather jacket with cologne, so when a prospective vice case calls for a tuxedo, he's understandably hesitant. But the thrill of high stakes poker and an all-expenses-paid trip on a luxury cruise liner beckon--as does the possibility of spending time alone with his beautiful and brilliant half-elf partner, Shay Steele.
Unfortunately, things are never what they seem... No sooner have Daggers and Steele set sail than the supposedly simple vice case takes a decidedly deadly turn.
Now they must battle on two fronts, trying to uncover a poker cheat while unraveling a tangled web of murder and lies. With suspects cropping up at every turn, a straightforward conclusion may not be in the cards. For Daggers and Steele to have any hope of building a winning hand, they'll have to swallow their fears and remain STEELE-FACED.

I received the very first book of this series as an online freebie. The author is good enough to make me buy the rest of the series. As this is the fifth, he's pretty darn good at it. Fun, serious, mystery, action, adventure, pretty darn good.
