Book Description

Jack Olsen, a down-on-his luck former cop, seeks inner healing at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Out fishing one day, he witnesses a deliberate collision that leaves one man dead. Hired by the elderly victim's companion to investigate the so-called accident, Jack discovers another world beneath the surface of paradise---one characterized by organized crime, political corruption, drugs and gambling. Working with Kate Carter, the new love of his life, Jack follows a money trail littered with greed, obsession and hate. With one final throw of the dice, it appears he's turned up snake eyes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very little action March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although the book starts out well, it soon bogs down. Not until the very end does the action resume. In addition there are way too many grammatical errors.

I enjoyed this book and will look for other Michael Smith's books for future reading. The story keeps you turning the pages to see what the next event is going to be, and who will be involved.

I liked the way the interaction between the characters unfolded and the plot unraveled. Feels like a sequel could follow. And I like a happy ending.
