Just after the Millennium, when I was based in Las Vegas, I was involved in assisting some international casino groups and what I learned inspired my thriller published in 2007 in the USA as Late Bet. Before moving to Vegas, I was also involved quite closely with the Formula One Racing scene. That became part of the sub-plot.
Not for the first time, there was interest in creating a movie from one of my books and Late Bet was no exception. Like other initiatives, involving Hollywood, in the end and disappointingly, it came to nothing. However, by then I had been encouraged to use Late Bet as a springboard for the movie’s script. This led on to a very different storyline now released in 2020 as Deadline Vegas.
Those who have read Late Bet will notice similarities but in reality, the differences are fundamental. Hopefully, you will enjoy both thrillers.
