Series: Thorndike Press Large Print Mystery Series. Hardcover: 301 pages. Gavin's novel, in large measure, functions not only as a wild ride but also an instructive tour worthy of firing up a little Google Earth for the visual. Nick's take on the locals, through Gavin's finely focused lens, reveals an authentic intimacy with the regional culture few writers can pull off. Gavin successfully balances a truly unvarnished and forthright assessment of the local color without tipping over into patronizing, mean-spirited mockery-no small feat.

Used but still in excellent shape. Book 2 of 3 in the Road To Kingdom Series. Clean pages and little wear. Great prices and great return policy! Best books around.

Buried In a Bog (County Cork Mystery, book by Sheila Connolly - book cover, description, publication history. New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly introduces the first novel in the County Cork mystery series-set in a small village in Ireland. Buried in a Bog (BOOK)-Honoring the wish of her late grandmother, Maura Donovan visits the small Irish village where her Gran was born, though she never expected to get bogged down in a murder mystery. Buried In a Bog (A County Cork Mystery) I really enjoyed this book

Published by Thorndike Press, this large print version of the novel is ideal for those with less than perfect eyesight. This number one bestselling novel follows up on some of the events of "Mr. Mercedes," allowing readers to learn what befalls some of the main characters, including Tom Saubers, who was disabled in the events of the previous novel. Finders Keepers" is primarily focused on around the murder of John Rothstein in 1978.

Amateur Texas Hold'Em champ Belinda Cooley, while cruising through the Gulf of Mexico on the Sea Gambler, gambles with her life when her fellow poker pros begin to disappear mysteriously.

I see andiesenji's point, but continued reading would have shown the heroine rescuing herself once (her behavior, such as wearing stilletto heels while climbing stairs on a ship in a storm, requires five male rescues, two by boyfriend, one by father, two by unrelated males). She stands up for herself a few times (only against women), instead of either crying or running away as she did in the first book. In fact, she doesn't cry in the entire book. She spends a bit less time silently lusting, and seems to have some other interests in life. The plot has improved from non-existent to merely silly. I gave Death on the Flop one star because Amazon doesn't let you rate any lower, Cashed In earned one star.

Another major plus is Penguin Group has wisely dropped the claim that the book gives valuable poker tips, although the author still appends a chapter of non-fiction poker advice. Death on the Flop contained 12 poker hands, all with major errors. Cashed In is an improvement, it has only 9 hands. The first one (page 167) has a flush beating four Aces, but then comes an impressive run of four (pages 139, 143, 145 and 179) without anything impossible happening. That's almost half the hands. There are major strategic problems, like six people calling all-in with four suited cards on the board, and statistical problems like frequent royal flushes, and the money amounts vary implausibly with some illegal raises, but at least the author or an editor appears to be dimly grasping some poker rules.

Starting at page 187, with two rounds of betting before the flop, we're back to errors. On page 247, the heroine reraises after her raise is called. On page 248 she is the chip leader and wins an all-in bet, but the loser is not eliminated. Six players go all-in on one hand, using all their chips. This means they started with exactly the same amounts, which is virtually impossible in the middle of a tournament. Page 252 is a possible hand under the rules, but involves an experienced professional tight player calling an all-in bet with a 4h Tc Kh Ad Ah board, holding only a K, and being shocked when he loses.

Only an author and publisher with deep contempt for readers would sell non-fiction poker advice written by someone who has not even bothered to learn the rank of the hands or rules of play.

Like the first book, this one is packed with filler descriptions of eating and dressing, with the author forgetting what she wrote a page or two later. The heroine gorges herself on chocolate at three in the morning, then tells the reader she hasn't eaten for 18 hours when she wakes up at noon the next day. She takes three pages putting on a spaghetti-strap minidress, which somehow grows lapels (or at least one lapel) the minute she walks out of the room. This kind of sloppiness disqualifies the book as a mystery, of course, but it also shows the author is filling up pages rather than telling a story.

This isn't a great book, it's no Bimbos of the Death Sun. But it's much better than the first one of the series.
I enjoyed this author's first "Poker Mystery," which, while quirky, was very funny. After two days, and I ordinarily read quite rapidly, I have not been able to get past the first third of the book. This is simply because I feel acute embarassment for the lead character. She is supposed to be a 40-year-old woman who has worked successfully in advertising, at least for several years, but allows her manipulative brother to put her into intolerable situations. It is simply too implausable for a woman of this age, who appears to be very attractive to other men, to let an amoral and irresponsible family member get away with doing things that are basically dishonest.
If she had slapped him down in one of the early scenes and stood up for her rights, it would have given her greater cachet and allowed the reader to laugh WITH her, instead of making her look like a sad wimp and laughing AT her.
