Best-selling author Robert Gregory Browne introduces ex-cop Nick Jennings, currently a table magician playing Vegas and "on autopilot headed nowhere fast", in a novella originally published in Lee Child’s "criminal anthology", Killer Year. Jeff Allin (whose TV and movie work includes appearances on everything from St. Elsewhere to NYPD Blue and House of Cards) performs the fast-paced, noir-ish thriller pinballing Jennings from an organized-crime boss to a deceased ex-prostitute and police informant and into a case involving the rich and depraved he didn’t look for, but found he couldn’t look away from.
His past wouldn't let him go.
Ex-cop Nick Jennings is struggling to survive a nasty fall from grace whenHolly Addison - reformed Vegas hooker and police informant - returns to town claiming someone is trying to kill her. Nick soon finds himself mixed up in a murder investigation involving the rich, the powerful, and the depraved, and it'll take everything he has in him to win with the hand he's been dealt.
Bottom Deal originally appeared in Killer Year: Stories to Die For, edited by Lee Child.
A short and well written book. It grips you from the beginning and keeps you entertained until the last page. Go give it a try, you won't be disappointed. The narration really makes a difference with this book, you feel apart of the story, it is so good. Give it a listen,
