Synopsis

Sin City. An artificial oasis of pleasure, spectacle, and entertainment, the gambling capital of America has reinvented itself so many times that it's doubtful that anyone knows for sure what's real and what isn't in the miles of neon and scorching heat. Las Vegas is considered the ultimate player's destination, no matter what your game. Almost anything is available—for a price, mind you—and sometimes losers will walk away from the tables with even less than just an empty wallet or purse; sometimes they don't walk away at all.Las Vegas is the true city that never sleeps, where fortunes are made and lost every day, and where snake-eyes aren't found just on a pair of dice.

AudiobooksNow review by John on 2010-07-21 09:19:49

Not a good book. First of all the cover fooled me by thinking is was a book by Michael Connelly. But it is not and the many short stories are not good.

AudiobooksNow review by Mary on 2010-07-23 15:27:32

This book is a collection of short stories that are very badly written. Not only are they badly written but not ANY of the stories have an ending. All of them just leave you hanging in the air. I thought this book was writen by Michael Connelly but it is NOT. He only edited it. The short stories are written by other writers.

AudiobooksNow review by Beverly on 2010-10-12 17:11:51

I knew this was going to be a collection of mysteries but the stories varied from ridiculous to just plain terrible. Many had no ending at all it just went on to another silly story. My 12 year old could have written them. I didn't even want to give it one star. Huge waste of time!
