GRIFT SENSE (Paid Investigator-Las Vegas-Cont) – G
Swain, James – 1st
Ballantine Books, 2003- Paperback
Tony Valentine is an expert at spotting gambling scams. When the Acropolis Casino has lost big to a gambler named Frank Fontaine, Tony is hired to find out how it's being done. But things really get interesting when it turns out Fontaine is actually another gambler who was supposed to have been killed years before.
The period felt more like the 50's than present day, and the only really dimensional character was Tony. But this is a fun, quick, rather light read with a couple very good twists.
