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.
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 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 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.
