SOMEONE IS KILLING OFF THE OLD MOBSTERS OF LAS VEGAS AND THE MAYOR IS THE #1 SUSPECT
When Casino Executive Owen McCombs discovers a dead gangster in the trunk of the Mayor’s car, he needs to find answers quick – not only to save the Mayor’s political career but to keep his own freedom since Metro Homicide Detective Chastity Tempest Taggart, already pumped up from throwing her ex-husband into jail, is motivated to prove McCombs and the Mayor guilty!
In Vegas Die, the best stereotypical Sin City characters and events pop up: the imploding casino, the buxom stripper, the nerdy card counter, superstar twins, the Elvis impersonator, the Graffiti Vigilante, and associated corpses, immolated, shot, sliced, and diced. In deadly play is also the desperate hunt for $7 million in twice stolen jewelry.
Vegas Die won an award for Best Regional Fiction and was selected by the Las Vegas Review Journal as one of the best selections for summertime reading. This newly revised and updated edition of this classic novel includes a hidden mystery for readers to solve. S.P. Grogan is an award-winning author, his books include Lafayette: Courtier to Crown Fugitive.
“I don’t know if Mayor Goodfella is believable. After all, I’m quiet and unassuming and I know for fact we never had mobsters in Las Vegas.” Snarky comment from former Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar B. Goodman and board director of The Mob Museum
“Vegas Die is the ultimate Sin City mystery.” – author Brian Rouff
