Pascal’s Wager by Mark Jacobs Review

Pascal’s Wager

By Mark Jacobs

 

After working on his philosophy dissertation Pascal Silver decides to move to Las Vegas in order to find the meaning of existence through playing poker and actually living. On the side he is a part time private investigator where his skills at reading people come in handy, one day a beautiful woman hires him to find out who really killed her father. The police’s prime suspect is Allegra’s mother since her father was found shot in her bed by his own gun that never left his side. Can Pascal find out who truly killed him or will all the evidence lead back to the mother? As if this is daunting enough Allegra’s half-brother is murdered and the police think she is the one who is to blame.

 

Mark Jacobs did a wonderful job with this book, even if you don’t play Texas Hold ‘Em you can easily follow along. If you are a fan of the old school detective novels this book will be right up your alley as Pascal gets the girl and kicks butt all at the same time he is solving a gruesome murder. It is a fun read that leaves you guessing as to “who done it” to the very last second. Mark Jacobs’ background in martial arts also comes into play making his action scenes believable and intense the descriptions could not have been any better. This book is definitely worth the read and I hope the author has a follow up on Pascal’s adventures.
