A hotel manager and casino employee explore a new relationship in this debut book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Sparring rivalries, illicit cartel and revelations create danger in their path.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “A Dead Game” by Mira West.

Just as compelling as the story is the author’s behind-the-scenes look at casinos and how they operate.

Working at the casino known as Paradise Palace is anything but paradise for Jasmine Woods, who discovers dealing blackjack can be a death-defying challenge after meeting the hotel manager, the debonair Frank Pazzarelli. The copper-haired Jasmine Woods is drawn in by Frank’s charisma, lured by her hunger for love and unsuspectingly enters his world of corruption in this riveting new novel based on true events.

In “A Dead Game,” Jasmine becomes an innocent target in the middle of an insidious rivalry. A gunshot in the casino changes everything as the truth unfolds. Frank, Kingpin and Warlord, must do whatever it takes to protect her, even if it means making a deal with the devil. Things go from mysterious to revolting when Jasmine learns the devil is a woman. Secrets, once revealed, escalate the threat when Frank meets his competition. The author’s, behind-the-scenes, depiction reveals more than just how the casino operates.
This is the first full-length novel for author Mira West, who presented her first book at the Children’s Book Writers Conference in San Francisco in 1987. She has published two children’s books and is a member of Romance Writers of America and The International Women’s Writing Guild. Her experience in the casino business inspired “A Dead Game.” West, born in Houston, Texas, embarked upon her diverse life showing Arabian horses at her ranch in Missoula, Montana.
