Publisher's Summary

Con artist Billy Cunningham is no stranger to the casinos of Las Vegas - he's ripped off every single one. But his latest scam - a year in the making - promises his crew their biggest payday yet. Billy has thought of everything down to the last detail...or so he thinks.
He hasn't counted on the father-son team of contract killers looking to cash in on Billy's head. Or his old flame, Maggie Flynn, out for payback for her broken heart. If Billy and his team can pass themselves off as high rollers for a week straight, living it up in Vegas's most exclusive suites and box seats, they'll get their chance to make their VIP status permanent. It's the biggest scam of their lives - if they live.

Not great literature, but lots of fun!

Bad Action is Book 2 in the Las Vegas con man Billy Cunningham series. It's a fun listen as Cunningham and his team attempt to take a casino for millions of dollars. The con is clever. Some of the team members are unreliable. And a hit team follows Cunningham trying to kill him. The book is a fun diversion. Nick Podehl does a fine job of narration.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Very entertaining but...

I've now read Swain's two Cunningham novels and found them both entertaining and even enlightening. However, as an African American reader, my enjoyment is marred by the lack of multidimensional sympathetic black characters (in fact, all of the black characters are monstrous, which is disturbing). If this doesn't bother you then you'll probably find the novel a fun ride. However, this was my last Swain book.
