This wonderfully funny and entertaining mystery stars Lucky O’Toole, head of customer relations at a Las Vegas resort. Readers who like cozy mysteries with a lot of sass, great dialogue and a plot that flies will love this.
During a typically crazy night at the Babylon, Numbers Neidermeyer, one of the Strip’s infamous oddsmakers, argues with a private detective, Jeremy Whitlock. The next morning, the oddsmaker’s dead body is found in the shark tank at another hotel. Jeremy is the main suspect — and also the boyfriend of Lucky’s assistant. But that’s just the beginning. There is a major prizefight at the resort, Lucky’s madam mother is auctioning off a virgin and her father has hired a temperamental, crazed new chef. One way or another all this requires Lucky’s help to sort out. (FORGE, Feb., 368 pp., $24.00)
