Review by: Dam Good Publishing on April 26, 2012 :
Can you create a better philosophically risk-taking gambler addicted detective than Pascal? I doubt it. He oozes Descartes, Kierkegaard, Socrates, and more if they were alive today and gambling men. I wish I could give away the entire plot to this story, but I can't. I will tell you that Pascal's easy job of investigating the case of Phil LaPierre's death turns out to be not so easy in the end.
You'll find out when you read this book, and if you are anything like me, you are going to love this ending. For readers who enjoy some sexy action adventures with some philosophical gambling, and a whole lot of mystery, this is the book for you.

You'll find out when you read this book, and if you are anything like me, you are going to love this ending. For readers who enjoy some tantalizing scenes (nothing super erotic), action, adventure, a tiny bit of romance and a whole lot of mystery, this is the book for you.
