THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER... Now only $2.99!

Exotic dancer Raven McShane doesn't want to be a stripper forever. She's always wanted to be a cop, but the cops won't hire her... for obvious reasons. When she launches her own private detective business, no one takes her seriously at first. But when a stripper friend needs help solving the town's most notorious murder, Raven joins forces with a horny bouncer and a smokin' hot Mormon to uncover the killer's identity. In their romp through Vegas, they tangle with casino thugs and old-money families, all of whom are determined to keep the murderer's name a secret.

"Imagine Kinsey Milhone, but with an attitude as outsized as her bustline."

"This was such a refreshing, honest and out of the ordinary detective story." --Top 500 Reviewer

What a fun and funny book! I think something on every page made me laugh or smile. (Read it just so you know the proper three part approach to casino buffets.) It's been a long time since I really enjoyed a mystery, but the characters and plot in Diva Las Vegas were unique and interesting. Who wouldn't be intrigued by an investigation team made up of a stripper, a Mormon and an entrepreneurial bouncer? I can't wait for the next installment!

After I read and enjoyed the book, I did some research on the authors. As far as I can tell, neither one of them has ever lived in Las Vegas. As a 34-year resident, I can tell you that they did their homework on modern day Vegas. They wrote about things that usually only locals know. While the characters were fictional, there were elements of notable residents, both living and dead.

This was such a refreshing, honest and out of the ordinary detective story. I really enjoyed it, because the author has created a strong main character who makes no bones about who she is and what she does to make money. She isn't just a stripper, she also adds to her income by being a PI, well a PI in training on probation. The scenes in which her non clothes wearing job is depicted are honest, gritty and she makes no excuses for making money with her assets and from the lust of others.

Diva Las Vegas was a great, breezy, fun read. Not usually a big crime novel reader, but this one was delightful. Reminded me of Evanovich and Parker. Lots of sex and booze which is so Vegas.

Diva Las Vegas is a page turner with many twists and turns in the plot and a very surprising ending. There is something for everyone in this story, humor, action and lots of steamy romance. While reading this I felt like I was in Vegas taking up the atmosphere of the place. Over all I give this book 5 poker chips. It is truly a high roller.
