Poker Anyone?

Joe Cameron, a Montreal ex-cop turned Private Eye, is hired by a woman to investigate the death of her brother, which occurred within hours of playing in a poker tournament in Las Vegas. The local police have concluded that the death was a suicide, but the sister doesn't buy it. Cameron flies to Vegas to find out the truth. The suicide theory appears to hold water, and Cameron returns to Montreal with the corpse. But after a second body is discovered in Vegas, under very similar circumstances, an investigation is launched and a cross-border task force is formed between Vegas and Montreal. The Vegas cop who worked both crime scenes is sent to Montreal to partner with a cop who happens to be Cameron's best friend. Cameron jumps in with both feet to help, his passion for solving crimes only surpassed by his love of women, booze, poker, and Asian food.
