If you haven't read "Cash Plays" yet ... Stop, Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200. Here be spoilers.
This latest addition to the "Seven of Spades" series deftly keeps a lot of balls in the air. There's relationship angst and agonizing heartache as Levi and Dominic are three months post break-up, plus a series of gruesome murders the Seven of Spades is not involved in, AND a series of equally gruesome murders committed by the Seven of Spades. "One-Eyed Royals" has it all in .... well, spades.
This whole series is so deliciously complex I don't want to give a lot of details because unraveling all the action, the heartbreak, the gore, and the developments in the case as well as Dominic and Levi's complicated relationship is what makes this series so engrossing.
The plot is superb and the pace of the book is breathtaking (even at 366 pages, it feels just too short!) Dominic and Levi's relationship is on hold, but they still desperately love one another and ultimately they have each other's back. Even after four books, there is so much more to learn about them as individuals and as a couple.
We are (finally) given an important clue about how the Seven of Spades may be connected to Levi's past ... but we are still no closer to figuring out his identity. All the twists and turns keep the central mystery intriguing and I anxiously await the next book in the series "A Chip and a Chair." 5 stars!
