I learned to love reading at a very early age, thanks to many hours of being read to by my parents and grandparents. As far back as I can remember, libraries and bookstores have consumed much of my time and money.

Jack Sloan is on the run from some very nasty characters. Two years earlier, as the head of All Nations Gaming, he was in a bind trying to find funding to complete two projects-43 million to be exact- and his available options were limited. So, when some interested investors stepped forward, Jack jumped on the opportunity. Unfortunately, the investors are not what or who they appear to be and have targeted Jack as the next victim of an elaborate con. When Jack discovers what is really going on, he takes off with their money and heads off the mountains of New Mexico, intending to drop off the radar.
His plans go awry when the “investors” discover where he is and come for their money. Thus begins a game of cat and mouse, a game that Jack can’t afford to lose.
Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves by Larry Seeley is a fast-paced novel with an entertaining cast of characters. While not the best debut novel I’ve ever read, it certainly isn’t the worst either. I enjoyed the plot but it did tend to ramble just a little in a few spots. That said, this novel does have the potential to become the first in a series if Seeley chooses to do so. Taking into consideration the riveting cliff-hanger ending, I can easily give this novel 4/5 stars.
