Overview

Leo turned the newly minted corpse over to minimize blood seepage onto the carpet and dragged the body into the kitchen. Like MacGyver gone wild and given over to the Dark Side of the Force, he rounded up the last of his cocaine, a bong, a tube of Super Glue, a can of lighter fluid, a wooden match and went to work on Paulie.

Just when you thought it was safe to take that long-awaited Vegas vacation, along comes a novel to stop you dead in your tracks. Welcome to the Wild Wild West, 21st century style. Don't be fooled by the slick media ads-the violence hasn't subsided. Lawlessness is simply done with more flair and in designer clothing.

Sin City Refugees is a black comedy that that aims to do for Las Vegas what the King of Pop did for plastic surgery. This series of intertwined stories provides an aggressive take on the new American Dream-and the high price people are willing to pay to achieve it. It's a modern cautionary tale containing no morals, explanations, or easy answers.

So strap in and enjoy the ride.
