Beschreibung
Evoking the golden age of crime, and for fans of Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie, comes A Gambling Man, from one of the world's bestselling thriller writers, David Baldacci.

A lucky roll of the dice

It is nearly 1950 and Aloysius Archer is on his way to Bay Town, California, to take up a post with renowned gumshoe Willie Dash. Making an overnight stop in Reno, he gets lucky at the casino, meets a talented actor named Liberty Callahan with her sights set on Hollywood, and helps out a man threatened by mobsters for a bad debt. With a magnificent Delahaye motor as his repayment, Archer goes west with Liberty to seek work, fame and fortune. The journey is dangerous and full of surprises as Liberty shows her steel and reveals she has a past as dark as Archer's.

A risk worth taking

In Bay Town, Willie Dash is tasked with finding out who is doing everything in their power to prevent his client, politician Douglas Kemper, from being mayor. As Archer and Dash investigate, they discover a town full of secrets and strange events. When two seemingly unrelated murders occur at Midnight Moods, a burlesque club owned by local bigwig Sawyer Armstrong, Archer and Dash must dig deep to find a connection between the killings.

All bets are off

To prove himself in his first case as a PI, Archer will need all of his skills to decipher the truth from the lies, the good from the evil and the relevance of some mysterious offshore happenings he witnessed during a late-night boat ride in the Pacific. Meanwhile Liberty, in a final perilous showdown, shows that she's a true star in the making.
