Murder in Vegas: New Crime Tales of Gambling and Desperation by Michael Connelly

Las Vegas. Lost Wages. 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 players destination-no matter what your game. Almost anything is available-for a price, mind you, and sometimes losers walk away from the tables with even less than just an empty wallet or purse-sometimes they don't walk away at all.

Now the International Association of Crime Writers and New York Times-bestselling author Michael Connelly have gathered twenty-two crime and mystery stories about the ultimate playground, Las Vegas, and what can happen behind the glitz and glamour. From a gambler who must-must-win at the roulette table to stay alive to a courier who's only mistake was accepting a package with Las Vegas as the final destination, come to 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.

Murder in Vegas features stories by: James Swain, S.J. Rozan, Wendy Hornsby, Michael Collins, T.P Keating, J. Madison Davis, Sue Pike, Joan Richter, Libby Hellmann, Tom Savage, Edward Wellen, K.j.a. Wishnia, Linda Kerslake, John Wessel, Lise McClendon, Ronnie Klaskin, Ruth Cavin, A.B. Robbins , Gay Toltl Kinman, Micki Marz, Rick Mofina, Jeremiah Healy

Very disappointed in this book. I thought it was a M ichael Connelly book but turned out to be different authors with short stories. Regret paying for this book.

The cover looks inviting, perhaps I should have read more about it. Thank goodness I did not BUY it but borrowed it from the local library. Only the intro is by Connelly- none of his work is included. What a disapointment.

I was very disappointed with this book, a bunch of short stories that were not very exciting.. I cannot recommend this as enjoyable reading material...

In the dark world of crime fiction, there's a clear distinction between authors that are smokin' guns versus those pretenders who merely blow smoke. In this crime compilation, British phenomenon T.P. Keating establishes his peerless talent as he blows us all away with ¿Killer Heels Kill Twice As Dead¿ - a magnum round of plot twists, cunning and delicious darkness of the highest caliber. Word-slinging wannabes take note: read and learn from this master marksman. With all that smokey noir blowing across the pond from England, when are we going to see a complete volume of Keating's work?
