However, after he sank his entire police pension into the business, someone needed to help him turn his dreams into reality — and keep him from sneaking off to patrol the not-so-mean streets of East Aurora, New York.
Kagan calls on his old friend John Bekker for help, asking Bekker to babysit Wally and prevent him from gambling for thirty days in order to meet the court’s requirements.
The assignment proves tougher than anyone imagined, but Bekker is determined to clean Wally up at all costs — even if it means facing down a killer.
To enter the drawing, us with the subject line With 6 You Get Wally by Al Lamanda (Five Star Publishing 2016) Wally Sample is a degenerate gambler who owes money to every major casino and loan sharks everywhere.
Suddenly, Liz’s business plan is plunged into deep freeze, while she and her father find themselves toying with a cold-blooded killer who’s playing for keeps.
Racing the clock until Wally’s court appearance, Bekker finds himself in the middle of corporate greed and scandal and a deadly murder investigation, while trying to stay one step ahead of a crazed would-be killer who will definitely try again.
And everything rests upon the very narrow shoulders of Wally Sample, who wants nothing more out of life than to find a winning scratch ticket and beat the odds.
Now, it looks like Christmas might be cancelled for the neighborhood kids if Liz can’t wrap up the case.
