Spotted Pony Casino Mystery Book 1

Dela Alvaro is a disable veteran who grew up on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation. When an IED in Iraq ended her military career, she came home to reassess her life and landed a job in security at the Indian run casino on the reservation.

Not even a year into being the assistant to the head of security, Dela is promoted on a trial basis. When one of the casino employees is found stabbed and stuffed in a laundry chute, she knows she can kiss head of security good-bye if she doesn’t find the killer before the media gets hold of the story.

While she is in over her head, she can’t decide if the FBI Special Agent called in to help is a blessing or a curse. It’s a man she ran across in Iraq who overrode her authority. When a second casino employee is killed, Dela has to decide if she can trust the special agent with not only keeping her job but keeping the rest of the casino employees safe.

“I love Ms. Jager’s imagination and how she can come up these mysteries!…When there was a murder at the casino, FBI Special Agent Quinn Pierce was called in to help solve the murder. I felt bad for both Dela and Quinn as they had some bad blood between the two when they served oversees. I felt that Quinn had feelings for Dela, but never came out and said anything. I enjoyed the two finding clues to who could be the murderer. I loved the two together. I encourage you to read the book.”Rebecca Claxon, Vine Voice
