Geoffrey loves telling stories as his father had, and the creative seed that had been sown in his teenage years has been rejuvenated through his passionate emotional works on film, canvas and on paper. His stories have been inspired by characters, events and places that have touched his life in some impressionable way.
Jako Palma, the Executive Manager of the West Coast Casino and Suites in Vancouver, has been murdered and his Albanian Mafia kingpin boss, Salvatore Cuntrera, has sent his abrasive fixer, Jorge Linderman, to tie up any loose ends that might endanger the operation. But Cuntrera's not the only one looking for answers, and some of those loose ends have agendas of their own. Cross, double-cross, hacking, high-tech break-ins and murder are the tools as the players conspire to get what they want before Linderman can sort out the facts.
Jamison Paxston, entrepreneur and high-stakes gambler at the Casino, was present at Palma's death and now becomes entangled in the deadly intrigue. He had thought his involvement with Palma ended with Palma’s death, but instead he becomes a pawn as he tries to move forward with his own life.
Jamison Paxston gets himself caught up in a conspiracy. His desire to pay off his over-extended gambling debts leads him to accept an illicit business deal, a project that results in a stream of events that threatens his business, his reputation, and lives of everyone who is connected to him. Ultimately he finds that he is playing the largest high stakes, no limit, Texas Hold’em real life poker game of all. The bet, if he loses, could cost him his life.
