Set to release in North America on April 10, 2018, Ace of Shades is Amanada Foody’s second book. Set in the devilishly wicked City of Sin, Amanda Foody’s newest novel explores a world where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…and secrets hide in every shadow. Readers will be swept away by the story of Enne Salta, a lady-to-be who must brave rowdy casinos, street gangs, and Ponzi schemes gone wrong as she searches for her missing foster mother – and the truth about her own past.
Thank-you to Edelweiss for providing me with the opportunity to receive a Digital Review Copy of Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody, in exchange for an honest review.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted. Frightened and alone, Enne has only one lead: the name Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless Mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city… And she’ll need to play.
