Snow Adrift Summary

Former Las Vegas homicide detective Jim Snow's luck has been going from bad to worse, spurred by a series of rash decisions and a quickly developing mid-life crisis. He quit the force a few years ago to play poker for a living and has been losing steadily for months. His money is running out - and so is his live-in girlfriend.

After one of Snow's poker buddies - a real estate investor and landlord who worked as a clown - is found shot to death in his home following their weekly game, Snow finds himself under suspicion by his former Metro Homicide partner, Marcia Stevens.

At forty-four, Snow is in the worst mess of his life. He's not sure what to do, who to turn to, or who to trust as he scrambles to stay one step ahead of an arrest warrant for first-degree murder.

Smart and tightly plotted, Snow Adrift is the hardboiled origin story to Kusler's popular Las Vegas Mystery series.

    When Jim Snow gets a panicked call from his sister, Karen, he knows something is terribly wrong. After all, he hasn’t seen Karen in two years, despite the fact that the siblings live a mere three miles apart. But now Karen’s estranged husband has been murdered, and she is the number-one suspect. After all, she stood to collect on her husband’s life insurance, just as she did for her last two husbands when they died. Luckily, she has a brother who is a Las Vegas homicide detective.… At least, he was before he quit the force to become a full-time poker player.

The body of Roberts’s daughter, Laura, a Las Vegas cocktail waitress, was found just days before, bashed over the head and set ablaze in the Nevada desert. It is a horrific crime - and cracking it could mean big business for James & James. There’s no shortage of suspects to keep them busy; everyone, from the victim’s obsessive ex-boyfriend, her mentally unbalanced tenant, her temperamental roommate, her shady fiancé, and even her volatile father, is under suspicion. But can the partners do what the police couldn’t?
