Better than the first two Tony Valentine books. Plot seemed a little more believable. A man of principles, Tony needs to unravel several scams, which turn out to be related. ( )

This is the third in a series featuring Tony Valentine, retired cop now casino consultant - showing casinos how customers are cheating them. This book is like the other, full of fun reveals of how people try to beat the system, full of great characters - Tony and his neighbor, Mabel. Even the crooks are great. I hope the 4th is close to finish… ( )

In the third Tony Valentine novel, Swain answers the question of
what's left after exploring Las Vegas and Atlantic City. The answer is
an Indian casino in the Florida Everglades. And, Swain ups the ante
here bringing in carnivals, alligator wrestling, strippers, and useless-
playing chimpanzees.
If you haven't dug into a Tony Valentine adventure before, you are late
to the party, but at least you arrived before the booze ran out and all
the remaining bozos started fighting amongst themselves.
Valentine is a retired police officer with a sort of sixth sense for
spotting a grift. He has a second career catching cheats working the
casinos and he can spot things no one else can. ( )

A throughly enjoyable read.By avoiding painful, and oftentimes plodding, detail James Swain keeps you occupied and intrigued by the inner workings of gambling and grift. Though Tony Valentine isn't the most likeable of protagonists, his knowledge and forthright demeanor make you root for him anyway. I will definitely be reading more of the Tony Valentine series. ( )
