Stolen sports cars, brilliant casino heists, and
the brazen kidnapping of a prince: only the shadowy

Monte Carlo's lavish casinos have become the target of a
sophisticated and brutal team of professional gamblers; a
casino dealer has been beaten to death; a German heiress's
son has been kidnapped. Who better to connect the crimes and
foil a daringly brilliant plot than Simon Riske, freelance
industrial spy? Riske -- part Bond, part Reacher -- knows

dangerous car chases across the C√īte
d'Azur, until he was double-crossed, served his time, and
graduated as an investment genius from the Sorbonne.
Now Riske is a man who solves problems, the bigger and
