A Gambling Man
Fortune. The second novel by David Baldacci featuring Aloysius Archer is titled, A Gambling Man. After the first episode left Archer in peril, he heads West in hopes of become an apprentice to a private detective in Bay Town, California. A stop in Reno brought him good luck, a large bundle of cash, a rare 1939 Delahaye convertible, and the companionship of Liberty Callahan, a talented actress who wants to make it big in Hollywood. Action in Bay Town is stimulating and perilous, and Archer and Liberty make a great team. Readers need not have read the debut in this series to enjoy this installment, but one’s understanding of Archer’s character is enhanced if one reads from the beginning.
