The Reverend Marcus Mallabee had an unusual ambition. He wanted to open a Christian-themed casino in Las Vegas. That might be why he was murdered.
John Holiday‚ reporter turned author‚ has just finished interviewing Mallabee when the minister is shot by a sniper. Holiday is deeply shaken by the experience‚ but soon finds that witnessing a murder is only the beginning of his troubles.
The Heavenly Casino is a fast-paced mystery featuring a reluctant hero with a big heart‚ a complicated love life‚ and a bad habit of asking too many questions. John Holiday thinks he has seen it all — until he encounters a killer with a soul as empty as the desert.
