Alice James had quit Homicide and Jim Snow, ex-homicide and now ex-professional poker player, had teamed up after encountering each other in the first book in the Vegas mystery series where both were looking into the murder of snow's brother-in-law. The new case had been in all the papers just a few days before. A young woman, Laura, had been found a short distanc The new P. A young woman, Laura, had been found a short distance from a lonely road, body on fire, head bashed in by a baseball bat laid across the corpse.
Now her father wants to hire them to rpove who did it.
He's not satisfied with police progress, after only a few days, and claims to know who did it. If they don't prove it, he will do something about it. It's the ex-boy friend he claims. Plenty of other suspects though.
It seems she was not exactly a well liked person in some circles. Beside the ex-boy friend, who bordered on stalking, there was the temperamental roommate, the off-balance tenant who hadn't paid rent in three months and refused to move, the fiance, even the father whose actions were bizarre to say the least. Nice writing here with a bit of simmering sexual tension between the two partners best if it remains unresolved. After two volumes, this series shows promise.
Ashes To Dust Las Vegas Mystery Book 2
Dec 20, Aleea J. If this growth continues into the third one I think the series will do well. On to the next Vegas story. Mar 01, Wayne rated it liked it. Followed very much the same format as the first in the series, a light hearted, easy going mystery. Again there seemed to be a lot of dialogue with everyone involved far to eager to give up pointless information and a lot of dead ends. Although due to this it is a refreshing change from many similar novels where you spend most of the book in the dark. Mystery So I've really haven't been into mystery books before.
I must say that the two I have read are making me change my mind. The characters are extremely funny. They partnered up and I Enjoy the cases they have together. Ashes toDust Another good story. Interesting mystery and interesting characters along the way. Alice and Jim make a good pair. So different in personalities. Moving on to book three now. Not as good as the first one. I was very disappointed in this.
Sorry but that's just my opinion. I will not do out the rest of this series. I was generous giving two stars. Mar 22, Nancy added it. 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? It's a fledgling outfit, after all, formed by the oddest of crime-fighting couples: Jim Snow is a forty-something former Las Vegas homicide detective who quit the force to become a full-time poker player, and Alice James is a model-turned-cocktail waitress whose foray into casino security landed her in law enforcement.
Together they are a force to be reckoned with? 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 fianc? But can the partners do what the police couldn?
Witty, smart, and immensely entertaining, Ashes to Dust is a satisfying whodunit sure to please even the most hard-boiled of mystery fan. Following on from the hint in the first book the crime fighters combine to form a private detective agency James and James. They are thrilled when their first case is to find the killer of Jack Robert's daughter. Her body was found bashed and burned and dumped in the desert.

Jim Snow the ex-homicide detective- semi-ex professional player and Alice James ex-homicide detective and ex waitress form an Agency. There is some URST which may or may not be fulfilled. Personally I feel it would be better l Following on from the hint in the first book the crime fighters combine to form a private detective agency James and James. Personally I feel it would be better left untapped as the dynamic may change. There are some some suspects but as they delve more into the victim's life the more suspects come to life. Again it is the slightly sleazier side of L.
Kusler writes about which is refreshing. Jun 17, Corina rated it really liked it. This was really more pleasing than I thought it would be. I had previously read Punctured, the first in the series, and had enjoyed it. This one is much better. It's a quick read. Nice plot and twists. But what I liked most about it was the humor in it.
Ashes to Dust
Jim Snow is hilarious. He can make you laugh out loud in the middle of investigating a gruesome murder. And he did, several times. I've got the next one, Desert Drop, ready to start on my Kindle and look forward to another dose This was really more pleasing than I thought it would be. I've got the next one, Desert Drop, ready to start on my Kindle and look forward to another dose of Rex Kusler's humor! It's somewhat better than the first. There's too much humor for a murder mystery that seems sillier than necessary. The plot is good but seems drawn out with excess words which feel like page fillers to me.
I do like the main characters so I plan to read the next in the series.
