Filled with DuBois' perfect blend of facts, accurate detail, and fascinating characters, this story reveals the life and struggle of those with gambling problems. Crime, politics, romance, and addiction fill the lives of Debbie Wood and Craig Two Horses.
A woman pitted against incredible odds, yet struggling to overcome her problem and take care of her children. A Native American man needing to find his role in his tribe and the issues of tribal sovereignty. Both are intriguing, rich stories that collide in the modern-day casino.
Bernie DuBois has written a startlingly good first novel that has all the compelling elements readers need to keep them up all night, turning pages to the smashing finale. I highly recommend this novel to those who love a good mystery thriller with topical social issues and of course, romance. You won't be disappointed!

Enjoyed this book a lot! By SKO I really like these characters - for the first time I felt real sympathy for someone with a gambling addiction. In addition to the thriller elements there is a good love story and the ending is great!
One Great Book! By Kathleen Curphy Bernie DuBois weaves her story of gambling, politics, murder, and sex together so thoroughly I couldn't put the book down. She writes about the hypnotic and addictive pull of gambling and its effects on family dynamics and the workplace. I never realized how gambling can change a person and the catastrophic and long term effects gambling (or any addiction) can have on the family. Her descriptive style enabled me to be right there with her characters facing the challenges they faced and wondering how this book would end. She has a way that brings her characters to life in this suspenseful drama about life in Minnesota, Washington DC, and on the reservation. She presents a compelling case for the issues related to Indian sovereignty and gambling that will enlighten all who read this book. It was a great book and I am ready to read her next one.
Buy if you love Indian culture By Tari June I really enjoyed this book. Not only did I get pulled into Debbie's gambling addiction, I loved all the Native American cultural elements in the story. Although it already has a great ending (you won't be disappointed), I liked the characters so much I hope she writes a sequel!!
Game Over By Marley This was an excellent book. I could not put the book down. I would love to see this book made into a movie.
