Gretchen Archer to Release DOUBLE DIP in January 2014
Having solved the mystery of how a progressive slot-machine game was won at will, skirted several humiliating run-ins with her ex-ex-husband, and somehow survived a case of mistaken identity that landed her in the pokey, Davis Way is back. Our favorite undercover casino security redhead returns in DOUBLE DIP: A Davis Way Crime Caper (Henery Press, ISBN: 978-1-938383-94-6, Original Trade Paperback, January 2014), by Gretchen Archer.
Months after the wild events at Biloxi, Mississippi's fabulous Bellissimo Resort and Casino, Davis Way returns for a second case with her colorful security team members No Hair and Fantasy to explore the latest unrest at the casino. Elderly slot-tournament players are disappearing, and the trail leads to Beehive, Alabama, where the So Help Me God Pentecostal Church seems to be swallowing them whole.
The plot thickens when the boss's spoiled rotten princess of a wife, Bianca Sanders, shoots herself in the foot, her personal assistant goes missing, and a Bellissimo executive decides Davis is the bee's knees.
In DOUBLE DIP, Davis needs a little help from her hometown of Pine Apple, Alabama, including her spunky Granny, her rotten ex-ex Eddie and his impossible mother, plus her own dysfunctional and loving family, to solve the mystery of the missing elderly casino players. None of which sits too well with Bradley Cole, the love of Davis's life. She may find the answers, but what will she have to sacrifice to get the job done?
Declared "funny and wonderful and human" by Janet Evanovich, and with a "satisfyingly complex plot" byLibrary Journal, the newest chapter of the Davis Way Crime Caper Series promises as much humor, Southern charm, and excitement as the first. DOUBLE DIP is a fast-paced ride of casino secrets, holy scandals, uninvited guests, pregnancy tests, and loaded dice.
