Las Vegas Girl

(1 customer review)


With each passing second, her strength faded as her world turned darker, unable to move, to fight anymore. Her lifeless body fell into a heap at his feet, and he stood there for a brief moment, panting, not taking his eyes off her. 

The crime: audacious

In a fashionable Las Vegas hotel, with hundreds of witnesses and countless video surveillance cameras watching, a young girl is brutally murdered in an audacious crime that shocks the entire city. 

It looks like a relatively simple investigation for Detectives Laura Baxter and Jack Holt, but it soon proves to be anything of the sort, as the one vital piece of the jigsaw is missing; the killer. 

The forensics: stupefying

Even with a crime-scene fingerprint that reveals more questions than answers, the persistent duo are undeterred and begin to make inroads into the life of the deceased. But what they discover is a complex web of lies and intrigue about her life that all seem to lead to an ambitious politician and a terrible secret. 

The truth: shocking

And now that secret threatens Baxter and Holt’s lives too, as a message from beyond the grave reveals the shocking truth. 

Will a connection with the victim’s distant past hold the key to catching her killer? And can they uncover them before they become victims themselves? 

Two mavericks form an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other with their lives, just not with their darkest secrets.

    I really enjoyed this book so when it was released as an audiobook I just had to add it to my collection. Even though I still enjoyed it I didn’t really take to the narrator mainly because she was playing a British cop and the accent she used was good as you knew who was talking but took some getting used to (mainly because being British I don’t think we sound like that- I could be wrong as who really listens to themselves talk). It won’t put me off listening to the story again tho.

    The story is set around two cops, who have to prove not only to there boss but to themselves that they have what it takes to be a Vegas cop and solve the highly politically charged murder case of a young woman. What lenghts will they go to make sure the bad guy’s go to jail and stays there. When new evidence leads them in a different direction and a pervious unsolved case things start heating up.

    I don’t think this book had as many twist and turns as some of the author’s other books but was still a very enjoyable tale. and I will be looking out for the next book featuring the heros of this book, as it will be interesting to see how ther parternship develops.
