It appears they have a con going down involving a cocky, filthy-rich Brit and his millions of dollars. Valentine's challenge: to figure out how all the pieces of the seamy puzzle fit together...?efore his luck runs out and his life goes bust.

"If you like fast-paced mysteries and unusual characters, don't pass on Swain's latest. For openers, you have Valentine, a retired Atlantic City cop who can spot a cheating grifter a mile away. You also have action, deception, multiple murders, and the ultimate gambling scam. A crisp reading parlays all into a winning combination. Paul Boehmer aces this performance. The nuances in his character depictions ring true. Odds are you'll really buy into this one. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
