Casino Caribbean is a contemporary thriller with a financial flavor, set in the offshore tax havens of the Caribbean and in London's financial district. It describes what happens when the ruthless founder of a hugely successful Internet casino is assailed simultaneously by a rival group trying to steal his business, and by the friends of a compulsive gambler he has ruined, seeking redress. It is the first in a series featuring Oliver Steele, a young investigative accountant dealing with the stigma of a recent bankruptcy. Oliver is hired by sharp financier Carlton Tisch to dig into the case of the elderly gambler. Helped and sometimes hindered by the man's talented daughter Kathy, and by Tisch's Israeli soldier-of-fortune sidekick, Kon Feaver, he finds himself dodging bullets on Antigua and trying to thwart casino operator Frankie Leon and his devious attorneys. Matters reach a violent climax on the rim of a reeking volcano on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.
