The old west comes alive in this modern day thriller
Trenton Russell was the CIA’s most professional, astute analyst with almost magical abilities to solve riddles. Then, on a mission that still haunts his dreams, he loses the love of his life because of the CIA's refusal to listen to his intel. He quits the CIA to reinvent himself as an investigative journalist. But haunted and guilt ridden as a civilian, the only thing he finds solace in is playing high stakes blackjack. Counting cards evaporates the stress of too much conscience. Sometimes the cards speak to him, revealing insights into mysteries he grappling with. When his best friends daughter in Las Vegas is kidnapped, a city already being terrorized by a serial killer, he tries once again to resurrect the magic. He soon discovers that all is not what it seems.
