From bestselling mystery author Stephanie Caffrey comes a boxed set of three full-length novels about Sin City's most fabulous detective, Raven McShane! Included in this boxed set are:
Diva Las Vegas (Book #1)
When Las Vegas exotic dancer Raven McShane launches a private detective business, no one takes her seriously at first. But when a former dancer and good friend needs help solving the town's most notorious murder, Raven joins forces with a built bouncer and a smokin' hot Mormon to uncover the killer's identity. Raven dodges casino thugs, old-money families, and long-buried secrets, all of which lead her down a path that's seedier than the strip in the morning light. If she can stay one step ahead of the killer, she just may prove that this beauty has brains, too.
Vegas Stripped (book #2)
When a heartthrob lounge singer gets passed over for a big promotion, who does he call for help? Raven McShane, the most unconventional detective in Las Vegas. When Raven isn't working at her gentlemen's club, she's stirring up a hornet's nest of trouble as a private detective, but this time she might be in over her head. When her investigation turns bloody, she enlists outside muscle (who just happen to be drop-dead sexy) to help her navigate Nevada's seamy underside and help her client beat a murder charge. Intrigue, betrayal, and colossally bad luck challenge Raven's spirits, but she charges ahead with her chin up and her heels poised to do maximum damage.
Royal Flush (book #3)
With a sassy mouth and a penchant for drunken shoe shopping, Raven McShane may be Vegas's most unlikely new detective, but she always gets her man. Which is why Hollywood heiress Melanie Weston needs Raven's help. When Melanie got serious with a cute Englishman she thought she hit the jackpot—especially when he claimed he was a distant member of the Royal Family. But now things don't quite add up, and she wants Raven to investigate Prince Charming's story. Along with her sexy, muscular sidekick, Raven suddenly finds herself chasing stories, making enemies, and putting herself in far more danger than she bargained for when her digging uncovers a sinister plot that goes way beyond happily-ever-afters. Raven may have more experience with platform heels than putting away bad guys but she's determined to stay one step ahead of trouble, solve a murder, and look fabulous the entire time!

About the Author
Stephanie Caffrey grew up in Wisconsin and has lived in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and London. Although she has traveled the world, her heart belongs to the thumping, degenerate pulse of a city that is Las Vegas. Having stayed at (or passed out in) nearly every casino-hotel on the Strip, she is recognized as an expert on all-things-Vegas, including where to find the best poker rooms, the most decadent foie gras-topped hamburger, and the most effective cure for a tequila-induced hangover. For a brief period in her early twenties, she may or may not have been a topless dancer. A constitutional lawyer by day, she is married with a young son, who will not be allowed to visit Las Vegas until he's forty.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've read two of these so far. Its quite the enjoyable series. Raven is smart and knows what she wants. The culprits are not totally obvious. these are good easy reads.
I read the first two books in this series and will be reading the third soon. This is one of my favorite series. It reminds me of Janet Evanovich's books- fast read with lots of laughs and always a good mystery
The start of this very enjoyable mystery that fully exploits the vices, larceny, and insanity of Las Vegas emerges one of the most unique amateur detectives in mystery fiction today. An unapologetic stripper at Cougar’s gentlemen club, Raven is also an aspiring but mostly unemployed new private investigator. When the former star stripper from Cougar’s pleads for Raven’s help in suing the man acquitted for the murder of her husband George Hannity, Raven is unable to reject the assignment even though she is obviously Rachel’s last resort. Eight million dollars in debt, the widowed trophy wife is desperate to escape the drug dealers she’s indebted to, and it just happens that the attorney she consulted is a frequent Cougar’s customer and number one fan of Raven. While Raven has the assistance of Cougar’s lecherous bouncer as a dubious sidekick, she has a more tentative mentorship with the Mormon private investigator Mike Madsen. That he is hot is not in question, but his adherence to his faith certainly can be especially when it comes to their platonic relationship. The fun and originality of this mystery comes from Raven’s rather blasé attitude towards stripping as an occupation and her equal tenancy at detecting. The humor is strong as she relates tales of Cougar’s clients, and she proves to be a surprisingly adept detective. Fast pacing, full exploration of the overindulgences available in Las Vegas and a heroine who completely accepts stripping as a routine job all combine to make this an enjoyable mystery worth a weekend’s reading.
Loved this series!
