The Seven of Spades is back with a vengeance—the vigilante serial killer has resumed their murderous crusade, eluding the police at every turn. But a bloodthirsty killer isn’t the only threat facing Sin City. A devious saboteur is wreaking havoc in Las Vegas’s criminal underworld, and the entire city seems to be barreling toward an all-out gang war.
As Detective Levi Abrams is pushed ever closer to his breaking point, his control over his dangerous rage slips further every day. His relationship with PI Dominic Russo should be a source of comfort, but Dominic is secretly locked in his own downward spiral, confronting a nightmare he can’t bear to reveal.
Las Vegas is floundering. Levi and Dominic’s bond is cracking along the seams. And the Seven of Spades is still playing to win. How many bad hands can Levi and Dominic survive before it’s game over?
First of all let me say that Cordelia Kingsbridge is absolutely rocking my world with every new book she puts out there (and every new chapter on Patreon). She’s been an auto buy ever since I read Close Protection and she hasn’t disappointed me since.
Now about the book. Well, for me Cash Plays is like two books in one.
The first half: Levi and Dominic sitting in the tree…lalalala….There is sex, tender moments, the ”I love yous”(where I almost melted), some more sex, meeting the parents, and the Seven of Spades serial killer lurking in the background.
And then the second half….
BAM! Addiction, lies, hate sex, fights, gang wars, the Seven of Spades creepier than ever, and in the end…I’m not gonna say. But. SHIIIT!
Just don’t expect this to end with hearts and flowers because it doesn’t. IT HURTS! And that’s ok with me. It makes me even more giddy for the next installment.
I highly recommend the whole series. You won’t regret it.
