Dead Man's Hand

Dead Man's Hand

What happens when the deck is stacked against you… 

From NFL rising-star prospect to wanted fugitive, Calvin Watters is a sadistic African-American Las Vegas debt-collector framed by a murderer who, like the Vegas Police, finds him to be the perfect fall-guy. 

…and the cards don't fall your way? 

When the brutal slaying of a prominent casino owner is followed by the murder of a well-known bookie, Detective Dale Dayton is thrown into the middle of a highly political case and leads the largest homicide investigation in Vegas in the last twelve years. 

What if you're dealt a Dead Man's Hand? 

Against his superiors and better judgment, Dayton is willing to give Calvin one last chance. To redeem himself, Calvin must prove his innocence by finding the real killer, while avoiding the LVMPD, as well as protect the woman he loves from a professional assassin hired to silence them.

Review of The Eternals by Clover Donovan

The Eternals (The Eternals #1)

For fans of Percy Jackson & The Spiderwick Chronicles. 

When a mysterious young girl shows up at Rowan Burton's front door on a snowy night, thirteen-year-old Rowan finds himself in a life altering race to save the girl's life. 

She's an Eternal, a living antidote for immortality & the last of her kind. And in order to keep her alive, Rowan must keep two sinister wizards who want to claim the girl for their own at bay before the final blood moon... or risk letting the world's destruction commence.

Can Rowan save the girl's life before it's too late? Find out in the first book in a brand new middle-grade series by Clover Donovan.

My Review:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. I don't often read middle grade books, but while reading The Eternals I completely forgot that it was meant for a younger audience. Rowan and Ever's story held my attention throughout the book. The writing was fast paced and easy to read. I read it in just a couple of hours total time. I'd recommend this book to readers of all ages. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series.
