Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories

Lifelong Texan, love reading from many genres thanks to early childhood readalongs with my Dad, love cooking for my family, working in my yard, playing with my cats and since being diagnosed in late 2012 with RRMS finding ways to keep body and mind active is even more important.
Ponzied - Marvin Lindberg Marvin LindbergThe book is set in Las Vegas and chronicles the most audacious character that I have ever met "Wayne Davis", former cop turned private detective who practices out of Amarillo, Texas... Wayne is going to be in Las Vegas with his wife Ruby and prior to leaving gets a phone call from an acquaintance in Vegas who he knows through the professional gambling circuit.. "Big Daddy" Louie Lipscomb is mixed up with some pretty shady characters who have chosen him to spear head their fraudulent investment schemes, he is in way over his head with gambling debts so seeing a chance to pay it off with "easy money" he agrees to be the front man for the scheme.. Once he gets involved however he has second thoughts and calls in Wayne to help him more or less extract himself from the deal without dire repercussions.... Of course, being a "shady character" himself Louie is playing both sides which almost causes him to lose his life in the process, thanks to Wayne he lives to face criminal charges for his part in the illegal scheme!Wayne is like a bulldog on a bone when he takes a case, a real Texas go getter who has built up a reputation for himself as someone who gets the job done... In this case he soon finds out what appears to be a simple "scam" is much more sinister....Throughout the story Wayne never lets up and finds clue after clue that takes him closer to solving the puzzle and stopping the crooks that are not only stealing from their investors but planning a very horrific crime with the millions they have amassed... There is plenty of action and byplay between not only Wayne and his client but also his partner Rhino and a few players from Homeland Security who have an interest in the "bad guys" as well.. We are taken through what can only be described as a surreal adventure that at it's conclusion will have managed to save millions in cash and untold human lives from being lost as well..The author has created a tale that readers can relate to in today's chaotic world, characters that will charm you and frustrate you with some of their more outrageous actions in the name of justice, and most of all keep you involved until the very end applauding the fact that one determined individual can make a difference after all!!Other books by the author include THE CUTTING EDGE and FOUR SQUARE Book Publisher Info
