A Gambling Man by David Baldacci Book Summary

Aloysius Archer, the straight-talking World War II veteran fresh out of prison, returns in this riveting #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from David Baldacci.

The 1950s are on the horizon, and Archer is in dire need of a fresh start after a nearly fatal detour in Poca City. So Archer hops on a bus and begins the long journey out west to California, where rumor has it there is money to be made if you’re hard-working, lucky, criminal—or all three.
Along the way, Archer stops in Reno, where a stroke of fortune delivers him a wad of cash and an eye-popping blood-red 1939 Delahaye convertible—plus a companion for the final leg of the journey, an aspiring actress named Liberty Callahan who is planning to try her luck in Hollywood. But when the two arrive in Bay Town, California, Archer quickly discovers that the hordes of people who flocked there seeking fame and fortune landed in a false paradise that instead caters to their worst addictions and fears.
Archer’s first stop is a P.I. office where he is hoping to apprentice with a legendary private eye and former FBI agent named Willie Dash. He lands the job, and immediately finds himself in the thick of a potential scandal: a blackmail case involving a wealthy well-connected politician running for mayor that soon spins into something even more sinister. As bodies begin falling, Archer and Dash must infiltrate the world of brothels, gambling dens, drug operations, and long-hidden secrets, descending into the rotten bones of a corrupt town that is selling itself as the promised land—but might actually be the road to perdition, and Archer’s final resting place.

A Gambling Man (David Baldacci) Book Reviews

Ok TryNot the Baldacci expected. Ok try..Score: 4/5

Very sub par for BaldacciI’ve read most of Mr. Baldacci’s books, but recently it seems like he is just mailing it in. I didn’t even finish half of the book. Finished the first 200 pages and nothing really happened. Pages and pages go by and there is no action, no dialogue, just very poor attempts at descriptive writing. Not sure I’ll pick up any of his books anytime soon..Score: 2/5

Mushroom manThis was a crude book about a very mean mushroom man who would wipe stool samples from the nearest hospital on random peoples houses and then pee smiley faces. Overall I like crude books so this was the perfect book especially since it kind of replayed my life. Must read for house poopers.Score: 5/5

Gambling ManGreat read, looking forward to the next case..Score: 5/5

A REAL PAGE-TURNER“A Gambling Man” is a roller-coaster of a ride! Many twists and turns, with suspenseful intrigue. Baldacci planted ample doses of humor in Archer’s dialogue to enhance the reader’s enjoyment. This book deserves more than five stars!.Score: 5/5

Gambling ManExcellent book as it is Fast paced. You read and the evil people become very obvious. Then the facts get figured out and you don’t want to put the book down. It all comes together at the end, and now you want David B to eat busy and write the next in the series..Score: 5/5

Gambling manI felt like I was being drugged through the muck, could not finish the book. YUK! Drop this character..Score: 1/5

A Gambling ManThis is a post World War II murder/detective novel. Good, but not great. Certainly not Baldacci at his finest. Also very predictable..Score: 3/5
