A new hero for me, Tony Valentine! Really enjoyed this consultant and his travels. Learned a lot about gambling, too. Characters, plots, description of place...James Swain is tops in all areas. Read every Valentine book in order and none of them repeated a plot...always fresh with new faces and Swain delved deeper and deeper into the great character, Tony V. Recommended this series to numerous friends and they all are enjoying his travels. Love the guy!
