Professional poker player Jimmy Harmon’s time in Las Vegas has been anything but routine. A bomb set by a henchman named Watson — ostensibly in the employ of Las Vegas gangster Wiktoria Sałkiewicz — has apparently led to the death of Harmon’s friend Will Archer. 

Harmon makes his way to the Remington Hotel, only to discover his role model “Big Mike” Dalton, part owner of online gaming site All-In Poker, has been deeply involved in the past week’s activities — though the veteran player was unprepared for the latest turn.

Professional poker player Jimmy Harmon has been dogged by a string of misfortunes and mysteries. Trying to stay ahead of Las Vegas gangster Wiktoria Sałkiewicz has seemingly led to the death of his friend Will Archer, in a car bomb apparently meant for him. Harmon finds himself interrogated by Las Vegas police detective Ben Marshall, but is reluctant to pin the blame on the mobster. Further inquiry implies that Sałkiewicz herself may be the target of unknown forces intent on buying out the Limelight Hotel that she makes her home base. But before Wiktoria can reveal the full scope of her suspicions on the true culprit behind the attempt on Harmon’s life, they find themselves under attack. Narrowly escaping the assailants, Harmon heads out of town, but ends up pursuing another trail with fellow gambler Rachael Leblanc — commonly known as “Peeps.” Tracking the body’s demise back to the Lyon Majestic Hotel, Harmon and Peeps uncover a cadre of federal agents keeping a secret witness, Peter Sokolov, under wraps, along with information about significant action to be taken the following day. One step ahead of the agents, Harmon makes his way to the Remington Hotel, where his friend “Big Mike” Dalton, mainstay of the Vegas poker scene and front man for the online poker website All-In Poker, has offered to help. But an inopportune slip cues Harmon into a new, as-yet-unanticipated threat.

From poker player to amateur gumshoe, Jimmy Harmon has been following a trail of mystery in and around Las Vegas: from a car bomb that appears to have killed his friend, Will Archer, to a shootout between gangster Wiktoria Sałkiewicz and a cadre of SUV-driving assailants to a cryptic plea from a terrified dancer to a half-buried body in the desert. Harmon and fellow poker player, Peeps, manage to sneak their way into the Lyon Majestic hotel and into the room of the mysterious "money man" they believe is behind everything... only to discover a new twist. Barely escaping ahead of the federal agents whose nest they've stumbled into, Harmon and Peeps emerge into the hotel lobby only to face a renewed threat...

Sought out by multiple unknown adversaries, from Las Vegas gangster Wiktoria Sałkiewicz to what seemed to be two factions of black SUV-driving pursuers, poker player Jimmy Harmon has followed a trail of bread crumbs given to him by a Las Vegas dancer named Amber. Deciphering Amber's cryptic message, Harmon and fellow poker player Peeps discover the body of a prostitute, Jasmine, half-buried in the Nevada desert. Tracing the body back to a local brothel, Harmon is rebuffed in his attempts to gather more information, but the savvy Peeps is able to assemble conclusions from seemingly obscure details. Barely managing to evade their pursuers, Harmon resolves to return to the city to confirm their suspicions and investigate further...

A special bonus for JAT listeners: the complete track of one of jazz tracks we recording specifically for Quorum.

 

Brooks Tegler, whom many listeners probably know as Captain Reg Macorum on Rogue Tyger, is also an accomplished jazz musician and band leader. We used much of his music for Quorum, but we didn't quite have what we needed for the "chase music." So what we did we do? Ask Brooks to do what he does best: organize a group of seasoned pros to record some new tracks.

This is one of the takes from that recording session.
