This book may be the best of the hundred or so "value" books I've read.
Great story, lots of intrigue, no unbelievable superheros.
I read it in two sittings, wow, great read!
You won't be sorry, thank me later.
An old friend, Dianne, persuades her husband Jay King, the King's Club's owner, to hire Kasey to teach his nephew Brad the ins and outs of casino operation. Then Jay tells Kasey in confidence he wants her to look into threats against him, Dianne and the King's Club. Situations designed to intimidate the Kings and ruin the King's Club's business become frequent, and we know from the onset that the Monk is behind them.
Tension escalates as the Monk terrorizes Jay and Dianne, while Kasey fends off Brad and tries to stifle her feelings for Jay, that she has had since she was in high school. The elusive Monk is always one step ahead of them and when he intrudes in Kasey's personal life she knows she has become a target. This intricately crafted plot builds to a dramatic climax.
As in all Carol Davis Luce novels, characters are fully fleshed personalities. The Monk is a fascinating villain, intelligent, devious, brutal, without an ounce on conscience. He uses people and then disposes of them. He moves through the casino under everyone's nose like a ghost.
The plot is intriguing, suspense puts you on the edge and the end comes as a surprise. Another wonderful story, excellently written, full of twists and turns that left me wanting more.
Night Game follows Casey Atwood who investigates casino cheating. She is hired by an owner's wife to investigate questionable goings on in the casino. Things get complicated when she falls for the owner, Mr King. As her investigation gets closer to the truth, she becomes the target of a deranged killer. Night Game is a thrill ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I have read so many books with these same types of characters, similar villains, similar romance and bosom heaving sex, similar outcomes that I just couldn't really recommend it. For me, it was sort of a lightweight thriller....entertaining but not much above an average thriller at best.
