"With drugs, gambling, brothels, murders and more, for historical crime fans, this one's got it all."--CNN Underscored
"Baldacci . . . definitely is onto something with Archer. He's a very interesting guy, in a rough-and-tumble way, and Baldacci renders Archer's postwar world with the kind of vivid detail that catches a reader's eye . . . Readers new to the series will definitely want to catch up on what they've missed."--Booklist
"Baldacci establishes bona fides for this historical mystery with great delicacy, deftly navigating the cliché minefield and giving his readers a sense of the milieu without drowning them in minutiae. He delivers a cracking good suspense novel in the process."--BookPage
"A Gambling Man moves at a steady clip, as Baldacci's plot pays homage to private eye novels by Raymond Chandler and Ross Macdonald. Archer is a well-drawn character, a man of his times who tries to overcome his past and embrace new attitudes. Liberty is no damsel in distress but is a strong woman who knows how to protect herself and isn't fooled by any man, rising above clichés that may surround showgirls . . . A return to Archer and Liberty will be welcomed."--South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"David Baldacci is no stranger to hitting literary home runs, but his second book to feature World War II veteran turned avenging angel Aloysius Archer, A Gambling Man, is a flat-out grand slam . . . Few authors are able to frame period pieces for a contemporary sensibility, but Baldacci proves more than up to the task in fashioning a tale that's as close to perfect as a thriller can get."--Providence Sunday Journal
"Fans of Baldacci should go all in for A Gambling Man. This spicy novel deals out a hand of brothels, gambling dens, drug operations, and government corruption--all a sure bet for a rollicking good time."--New York Journal of Books
"A Gambling Man is delicious crime noir with fascinating historical data thrown in to keep the story interesting . . . Archer is one of today's standout fictional characters, and you are missing out if you don't jump into this terrific series at the beginning."
"In Archer, Baldacci has plumbed post-war time and place. His story's personality is framed by Archer's snappy dialogue [and] infused with just the right amount of suspense to keep you glued to the narrative."--Jersey's Best
"Good stuff from a master. Can't wait for another."--Florida Times-Union
"David Baldacci is one of the all-time best thriller authors."--Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Baldacci delivers, every time!"--Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author
