James would make, but then Spano's second, female cop, Clare Vengel murder mystery, Death Plays Poker (ECW $24.95) is not seeking highbrow status. World class poker players are being strangled in their hotel rooms so Clare must pose as a card shark, alias Tiffany, to catch the Poker Choker. She out to write a thriller, not win a Giller. 978-1-55022-994-3
