Nikki Tate is great at poker. She plans to make enough money to escape from Las Vegas and pay for tuition in Virginia. Her dad is a world famous poker player and her family owns the Andromeda Casino. Nikki’s plans meet a few bumps when her dad is released from prison based on new DNA evidence.

When Nikki starts to date Davis, her dad is very concerned. Davis’s family owns the largest casino on the strip, and Nikki’s dad says that there is more to Davis’s family than meets the eye. Then Nikki’s dad is murdered. What follows is a fast paced, age appropriate mystery, filled with action and conspiracy. This is a great book for reluctant readers and those who like mystery and action.
