This time, it’s not a job.
After proving his innocence as a murder suspect, taking down an assassin, and being an instrumental part in solving a high profile murder, Calvin Watters believes he can finally move on, until Ace Sanders’ prison escape catapults him into action.
This time, it’s personal!
Something has always bothered detective Dale Dayton about the arrest of Ace Sanders. Call it police intuition, but his inner "cop alarm" keeps twitching. When Dale reopens the case, he’s introduced to new evidence that leads him into a political nightmare.
Who will play the wild card to survive?
While Calvin tracks Sanders across continents and into unknown, unfriendly surroundings, Dale remains in Vegas to uncover the truth behind police corruption, prison escapes, and hired assassins. But Calvin and Dale must be vigilant, because there’s a deadly, new player in town.

Wild Card is Book 2 in the Calvin Watters Mystery series and follows protagonist Calvin Watters who is now a private detective. Many characters from book 1 return and play an integral part in the story. The story is fast paced, has lots of action and is pretty funny but it is fairly unrealistic the situations that Calvin gets into and survives. If you can get past some of the far fetched aspects of the story it is pretty fun and enjoyable.
The narration by Connor Goff is well done and he does a great job with the character voices.
If you enjoyed book 1 in the series or enjoy fun action filled mysteries or thrillers you will probably enjoy this book as well.

Too contrived and unrealistic
This book is a continuation of the story begun in Dead Man's Hand, book 1 of this series. Many of the characters introduced in book 1 return in this novel. Somewhat disappointingly, this story is just too contrived with too many superhuman feats and unlikely coincidences. It's exciting and suspenseful, but unrealistic. Again, it does not end with a cliffhanger, but is set up for a continuation of the story.
Conner Goff continues to narrate this series with a competent performance.
