October, 2003. Sandra Blake is dead. A bullet in her forehead. Her ex-husband wants former private investigator Jack Barnett to find the killer. The investigation leads Barnett into a high-powered world of shady characters and a rising body count, all for control of a seemingly unimportant slice of vacant land in a seedy area of downtown Las Vegas. A mysterious case of wine rests at the center of it all, and everyone wants it. Can Barnett find the killer before the whole thing blows up in his face?
THE DOWNTOWN DEAL is a novel, the third hardboiled entry in the Jack Barnett / Las Vegas series, once again dragging the reader alongside the reluctant ex-PI down the darkest streets of Sin City, USA.
