Christopher Reich knows how to keep a reader engaged. CROWN JEWEL is his latest novel starring Simon Riske. On the dust jacket is a quote from Kyle Mills on Reich's previous Riske novel, THE FAKE. Here it is, " Reich has created an irresistible character that will leave readers both wincing and cheering with every page." Sums the Riske novels to a tee. This one has auto racing (tangentially), royalty, gambling cheats, corrupted cops, murder, European gangsters, and lots of action. Hard to put it down. Great read. I can't wait to see where he goes next with Riske, based on the last two pages. No spoilers from me though.
