Casino Girl

(1 customer review)


She seemed peaceful, as if in her last moments her young body hadn’t agonized, desperately trying to live, to survive. Her lips were parted slightly, as if she were breathing gently while dreaming of something only she knew. Whatever her secret, she’d taken it with her. 

The girl

When a beautiful young girl is murdered in the high-roller pleasure pit of the exclusive Scala Casino, it doesn’t take long for the news to leak out amongst the glamourous and wealthy clientele. Before she had met her grisly end, Crystal had been seen boarding an unmarked helicopter for a late-night flight. Where had she been going?

The money

The stakes are always high at the roulette table, but for some they are higher than others. Among the players a stone-cold killer watches, waits, and then kills without leaving a single trace of evidence. Rien ne va plus but death.

The game

The name of the game is murder, and it doesn’t stop with Crystal’s. Anyone who might threaten to reveal the assassin’s identity will soon find that out. In a high stakes game, where anything goes, anyone who makes that mistake could be next on a killer’s list.

Because in Las Vegas, secrets can kill.

Two mavericks make an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other with their lives, only not with their darkest secrets.

Fans of James Patterson, David Baldacci, Lee Child, and Robert Dugoni will be engrossed in this riveting, entertaining police procedural that will keep you reading well into the early morning hours.

    love this author’s style of writing. I haven’t read one of her books and left anything other than a five star review and this book is no exception.

    This is the second book in the series and I hope it continues. The mystery is complicated enough to keep you guessing until the end, with all the suspects and twist it takes. It does continue on from the first book (but it is easy to follow if you haven’t read them in order), in so much as, one of the perps court case’s come to trial. This is just a side story line and it is nice to find out what happens with him. The main story does get resolved and I love the way it happens.

    Gwendolyn Druyor is one of my favourite narrators, she is so talented and you can just hear the emotion being portrayed by each character as they feel it. I was really please to sit and down and start to listen to find one of my favourite author had joined teams with one of my favourite narrators. Hope they plan to stick together for the next book as it will he a must for my collection.
