While it might be that the “house always wins” sometimes the good guys and the bad guys do too. The house in this fun story is Dirty Sam’s Casino in Long Harbor, New Jersey. There is a lot to this easy to read story. There’s murder, mayhem and even a Senior Day gamble. I do have to warn you that if you are trying to diet or count your Weight Watcher points, this would be a tough book to read. Chief Porfino and Detective Ted Hanson will have your mouth watering for absolutely any type of onion rings, Dirty Fries, steak and cheese sub, grilled beef and provolone, meatball sub…well, you get the gist of what I’m trying to say.

Tom Minder is pretty good in developing his characters. There were of lot of them, but I had no trouble in keeping them all straight. This might be because they all had a personality, and each had a job or a purpose that the author made clear. I said this was an easy read and it is but you do need to stay focused. There are a lot of twists and turns along with a lot of hints and innuendos about the “bad guys”. If you stay with Tom Minder and pay attention, you might get it. If it takes you all the way to the end to figure out who got what, you’ll still have had a good time.

Tom Minder has some other Long Harbor books. They sound like he creates a lot of different storylines. I’m going to have to check them out.
