Winner of the Mystery Novel Award. Davis O'Kane thought his fall from grace had reached its lowest point, with an impending divorce and a custody battle for his twin daughters, but then he finds a dead body in his restaurant, and his world sinks as deep as a Uranium pit in the high desert of Nightingale, Nevada. Nightingale is a place where high stakes gamblers and rednecks belly up to the bar with high-priced hookers and federal agents. High Steaks propels the reader into the realm of crooked horse racing, cheating the roulette wheel, and murder as hot as a Nevada summer, set against a backdrop of the town's first contested mayoral race in decades. Follow Davis as he unravels the murder and pulls himself up from the brink of despair.
