Book Review-A-Gambling-Man

A Gambling Man

(Archer #2)

by

David Baldacci

 

 

After reading One Good Deed (Archer #1) I was looking forward to the next installment in the Archer Series and was not disappointed.   Archer is on his way to Bay Town, California, and a job with Willie Dash a local private eye.

He stops for a while in Reno and with some luck, he finds a wad of cash in his possession and a French, Delahaye convertible.  He also gains a traveling companion in the form of the beautiful Liberty Callahan who is an aspiring actress.

Archer quickly lands a job with Willie Dash and immediately finds he is investigating extortion, blackmail case.  Very soon murder is also added to the list and as the body count grows so too, does the complexity of the case, along with his feelings towards Callahan.  As it was in One Good Deed it was the wealthy who were the villains of the story as they strived to increase their wealth by fair means or foul.

Should you have never read a David Baldacci story I can recommend Books 1 and 2 of the Archer series and have no reason to believe Dream Town (Book 3) will be any less enjoyable.
