Las Vegas. October, 2003.

Sandra Blake is dead. A bullet in her forehead. Her ex-husband wants former private investigator Jack Barnett to find the killer. The investigation leads Barnett into a high-powered world of shady characters and a rising body count, all for control of a seemingly unimportant slice of vacant land in a seedy area of downtown Las Vegas. A mysterious case of wine rests at the center of it all, and everyone wants it. Can Barnett find the killer before the whole thing blows up in his face?

THE DOWNTOWN DEAL is a novel, the third hardboiled entry in the Jack Barnett / Las Vegas series, once again dragging the reader alongside the reluctant ex-PI down the darkest streets of Sin City, USA.

About the Author

After thirty years as a professional musician (piano), Mike Dennis left Key West and moved to Las Vegas to become a professional poker player. He turned to writing when his first novel, The Take, was picked up by a publisher in 2009.

He has created the Key West Nocturnes Series, a set of standalone noir novels. These books will lift the veil on Key West and reveal it as a true noir city, on a par with Los Angeles, New Orleans, or Miami. There are currently three novels in this series.

Mike has also created the Jack Barnett / Las Vegas series, hardboiled tales centering around a reluctant ex-private investigator living in Sin City, USA. The series consists of two novelettes and a full novel.

Max Allan Collins, author of ROAD TO PERDITION and over seventy other novels, has said, "Mike Dennis is the modern master of noir."

Vicki Hendricks, author of CRUEL POETRY, has said, "Dennis writes true noir."

Jeffery Deaver, author of CARTE BLANCHE (007 James Bond) has said of The Ghosts Of Havana, "Dennis nails both noir tone and thriller plotting perfectly!"

In December, 2010, Mike moved back to Key West, where he enjoys year-round island living with his wife Yleana, whom he married on a warm December night in 2012 on the rooftop of an apartment building in Havana, Cuba.
