From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mara Jacobs comes Book 1 in the Anna Dawson mystery series. 

My name is Anna Dawson, and I'm a gambler. 

And like any gambler will tell you, sometimes that’s good, and sometimes...not so much. And sometimes it’s an outright problem.

I love Vegas, and I love the life I've built, but when one of my friends is murdered, and another one shot at, I know I need to take a serious look at myself. And I need to call in the big guns. Even if that means teaming up with Detective Jack Schiller, a man battling his own demons. 

Right now I'm just trying to juggle protecting my friends, helping Jack while not letting him get too close, and finding a murderer. And oh yeah, no one can learn about my gambling. 

Or this will be the last hand I'm dealt. 

*NOTE: The case is solved, the perpetrator caught, but there are a few threads that are continuing on through the next book and the series. 

Books in the Anna Dawson series thus far: 
1 - Against The Odds 
2 - Against The Spread
3 – Against The Rules
4 - Against The Wall
5 - Against The Grain

    I loved the characters and how they interacted. Just when I thought I'd figured things out another twist in the plot would pop up and surprise me! I'll be reading the entire Anna Dawson series!!
