Publisher's Summary

Poker: a high-stakes, deadly serious professional sport. Doc Hill knows all too well the risks involved. Or so he thinks. But when one of the greatest poker players of all time dies, the stakes rise even higher. Doc must solve an increasingly frightening series of murders - and win the biggest tournament of his career - before he finds himself forced to fold his cards for good.

A fast-paced thriller that delves deep into the enticing world of high-stakes poker, Dead Money raises the risk of the political thriller to create an exciting new genre: political poker thriller.

A great find

Is this a poker book disguised as a crime novel. It is great as either one . I will definitely listen to the follow up on the cold poker gang ; probably tonight

Very enjoyable listen

What made the experience of listening to Dead Money the most enjoyable?

The possibility of poker action showing the game is of skill and not chance.

What did you like best about this story?

The relationship between Annie and our hero.

Have you listened to any of Rish Outfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not had the pleasure.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I felt like I knew the ending long before it arrived. Even though that is how it turned out the book was enjoyable. The story keeps the listener interested and that is how it should be for a book to be a success.

Any additional comments?

I wrote the book Adjuster Stories which is on Audible. It is disappointing when you see how many of your books have sold and how few people take the time to submit a review. I am pleased to recommend the book and you should give it a listen.
