Whereas the first five books in the series started with a dead body, this installment begins with Daggers and Steele -- homicide cops -- out of their element. An undercover sting, with shades of Casino Royale, leaving our titular heroes scrambling for formal wear and entering a world they're ill prepared for.
And yet... they manage as only they can.
Murder does rear its ugly head, but at its core, Steele-Faced is a great change of pace for this series. Alex P. Berg continues to show his deft touch at language, and whereas the progression of Daggers and Steele's relationship largely occurred "off-screen" in previous books, this one finds the latest step front-and-center.
At this point, it was no longer a case of "will they/won't they," it was more "when will they?"
As undercover poker capers go, this is largely standard fare, but this isn't the sort of series you read because you're looking for the never-done-before twist. This is a series you read because it's fun, entertaining as hell, and you enjoying spending a few hours with Jake Daggers and Shay Steele. In that measure, Berg again turns in a rousing success -- and to this point, the best in the series.
That being said, the books are a fun read. Not great , but fun. The plots are well used, but then they're well used because they work. and Mr. Berg makes them work. The main characters are pretty much stereotypes, but they are all likable. My main complaints about the book is that the world the characters live in needs to be developed.
Bottom line. If you're looking for a fantasy novel you're probably not going to like this book. However if you have a taste for police procedurals and want one that's a little bit different give this series a shot.I enjoyed them
