After a death-defying jump from a burning casino hotel room, Ricky Smiths luck changes, and this loser is miraculously transformed into a major-player winner. Now professional grifter-buster Tony Valentine wants to know the truth behind Rickys lucky streak.
Annotation:
Ricky Smith seemingly cheats first the Grim Reaper when he escapes unscathed from a burning hotel, and then a Las Vegas casino where he immediately proceeds to clean up at blackjack, roulette, craps, and poker. Maybe Death's willing to forgive and forget this time, but the Nevada Gaming Control Board certainly isn't, so it hires ex-cop and current gambling consultant Tony Valentine to find out what's behind Ricky's amazing and extremely implausible lucky streak. This is the fifth in a series about Tony Valentine.

Praise

New York Times
"In this series about gambling, the main character is a real winner." - Janet Maslin 03/10/2005

Kirkus Reviews
"A wall-to-wall adrenaline rush as potent as a gambler's high. Tony's fifth is his biggest and just possibly his best." (starred review) 01/01/2005

Publishers Weekly
"[T]he plot goes delightfully over the top like Agatha Christie at her wildest." 02/07/2005

Booklist
"Swain...adds all the sinew we look for in the best caper novels: quirky characters on both sides of the law who constantly surprise us with just the right mix of comedy, violence, and humanity. Yes, that's El more Leonard territory, but Swain has annexed a nice little subdivision all for himself." - Bill Ott 02/01/2005
