The book, described by Book Nook guest reviewer Brian Rouff, as more fun than the roller coaster at New York-New York, has an added twist. Within the book’s pages are clues to a treasure hunt for a dagger hidden somewhere in Las Vegas that will be worth $25,000 to the person who finds it.
Rouff details the plot in his blog item last month: "When someone starts bumping off the old-time mobsters of Las Vegas, the mayor (based loosely on our own flamboyant Oscar Goodman) becomes the No. 1 suspect. Mix in an over-the-top cast of card counters, Elvis impersonators and assorted corpses, and you’ve got the ingredients for a sizzling summer page-turner."
