Small time Las Vegas private peeper MIKE ROSE has a love/hate relationship with the city on the sands. His mother was a showgirl, and his dad was a small-time thug, or at least that's what he always thought. Then his frequently-institutionalized brother Avi lets slip a few words in the wrong ears and old family secrets are coming home to roost. Also, old Family secrets, if you catch my drift.
Ssuddenly Mike's whole world turns upside down.
An excellent, ambitious book, deliciously dark, if possibly a tad overwritten; possibly the best private eye novel ever set in Vegas. By the way, this was set in 1993, and was written several years before Sinatra moved to the other side of the lawn.
More, please, Mr. Ventura.
