It's Christmas Day in the sleepy town of Sorenson, Wisconsin, but instead of unwrapping presents, deputy coroner Mattie Winston is at the burnt remains of a house where a charred body has been found. The victim is none other than Jack Allen - a paraplegic who recently won a huge casino jackpot. Upon closer inspection, Mattie and detective Steve Hurley are convinced Jack was murdered to steal his winnings, giving the phrase blackjack a whole new meaning.... But as Mattie investigates, even her cutting-edge forensic skills keep coming up short in a case with as many suspects as twists. After her odds-on-favorite turns up dead, Mattie and Hurley must race to find a killer before another victim cashes in his chips.

If it wasn't for bad luck, Mattie would have no luck at all. She and Hurley continue to figure out crimes and their relationship. However the crimes of Sorenson are no match to their relationship. This is a great read and I look forward to listening to the next book.
I LOVE THIS SERIES, I JUST WANT HER TO WRITE FASTER. I LOVED EVANOVICH TOO, BUT SHE SEEMED TO LOOSE INTEREST IN THE LATER BOOKS. HERE'S HOPING THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN HERE
Yes most definitely. Love these books, well written, good humours
Hard to tell, will have to listen again, the continuing saga of Mattie and Hurley.
Well done as usual.
I loved the first few books, but maybe it's because I'm 50+, but i see Mattie making so many foolish decisions that I couldn't wait for the book to be over. Thinking that gambling is he best way to grow the settlement money you've received, losing over $30K and still wanting to go back and try some more--ridiculous! I guess it's all about advancing the plot/drama, but the fact that Mattie and Hurley can't just talk about their feelings is also ridiculous.
I was ready to drop the series, but just realized I'd already bought the next book, so let's hope she learns how to talk to Hurley, ignore the ex-husband and get her job back--or, duh, move to another city.
