Skin Game

PI Jim Bean should walk out that door and let the Vegas bouncer do his worst. That's what an ordinary man would do. But nobody ever accused Jim Bean of being ordinary. Private investigator Jim Bean has worked hard to create his new identity in Vegas. He doesn't have a great life, but it's his. When his ex-fiancée Erica Floyd walks into one of his investigations looking for her missing sister, the tragic past he wanted to leave behind comes flooding back. Despite serious reservations, Jim agrees to search for Erica's sister. Clues lead him to a human trafficking ring and one of Vegas's most influential mobsters. Unless Jim can face the ghosts of his past, the anger of his present, and a new enemy out for his blood, four women will suffer a fate worse than death. _________________________________ Praise for J.D. Allen and Skin Game: "That wonderful and rare combination of high-speed suspense and complex, richly drawn characters will keep you on the edge of your seat." -- Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author "Skin Game is a very solid adventure through the Las Vegas underworld." ¿Crimespree Magazine "With one foot in the classic PI tradition and the other in the new age, Skin Game is no roll of the dice. J.D. Allen delivers a smart, fast-paced book that will keep the reader on edge from start to finish." ¿Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break "Skin Game never tries to be more than it is, and that works in its favor. Instead, fully engaging with the expected tropes, Allen turns the novel into something akin to comfort food for those who enjoy this type of story. That is important and will surely make fans of classic PI novels place Allen on their radar and keep an eye out for whatever she does next." ¿Criminal Element

Skin in the Game

Skin in the Game

From the bestselling author of The Black Swan, a bold book that challenges many of our long-held beliefs about risk and reward, politics and religion, finance and personal responsibility'Skin in the game means that you do not pay attention to what people say, only to what they do, and how much of their neck they are putting on the line'Citizens, artisans, police, fishermen, political activists and entrepreneurs all have skin in the game. Policy wonks, corporate executives, many academics, bankers and most journalists don't. It's all about having something to lose and sharing risks with others. In his most provocative and practical book yet, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows that skin in the game, often seen as the foundation of risk management, in fact applies to all aspects of our lives. In his inimitable style, Taleb draws on everything from Antaeus the Giant to Hammurabi to Donald Trump, from ethics to used car salesmen, to create a jaw-dropping framework for understanding this idea. Among his insights:For social justice, focus on symmetry and risk sharing.Minorities, not majorities, run the world. You can be an intellectual yet still be an idiot. Beware of complicated solutions (that someone was paid to find). Just as The Black Swan did during the 2007 financial crisis, Skin in the Game comes at precisely the right moment to challenge our long-held beliefs about risk, reward, politics, religion and business - and make us rethink everything we thought we knew.
