For anyone who enjoys reading, this book is a must. Matthew has a way with describing what is around him and what is real with words that will keep you reading and wanting more after The End. He gets to the heart of a matter and lets you know just how it is...no glitz or BS, just this is what I see and feel and know, and by gawd if you also are not feeling and seeing what he has put into words. I highly recommend this book, along with his first book Beneath the Neon. They are both outstanding works of writing/journalism.

The average tourist vacationing at Bellagio or Mandalay Bay may not leave Las Vegas Boulevard for the entirety of his or her trip. Most downtown visitors are not likely to venture beyond the magical canopy of the Fremont Street Experience. Luckily for these folks, Vegas resident Matt O'Brien has written this excellent montage of gritty real-life stories to provide a glimpse into corners of the city they probably hadn't previously considered. An eye-opening piece on the disruption faced by families when their trailer park changes ownership. An unfiltered look into the life of a paroled murderer trying to start over on the outside. A terrifying and captivating adventure through the storm drains of Las Vegas and the dangers that lurk within. And the centerpiece - a writer's first-hand account of the desperate yet often hopeful tenants at a well-worn weekly motel in a forgotten area of East Fremont Street. All of these thought-provoking narratives and many more await the reader in this compelling and compassionate collection of stories unfit for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority promotional pamphlet.
