WINNER – BEST NOVEL OF THE YEAR – PULP FACTORY AWARDS CHICAGO 2019!
They’re aiming to knock over 1965 Sin City!
It’s the holiday season of 1965, and the fabulous Caesars Palace resort and casino is about to open in Las Vegas. And its vault is filled to bursting with cash.
John Harper and Saul “Salsa” Salzman roll into town with inside information: a secret way into the casino, leading right to the vault itself. Putting together a small but highly skilled team, they make their move, aiming for untold riches.
But jobs like this never go as planned. A beautiful widow, a jealous enforcer, and a murderous rival casino owner all want a piece of the pie. Before New Year’s Day arrives, Harper and Salsa will be lucky to escape Sin City with their lives!
A brand-new heist tale from the award-winning author of Sentinels, the Legion trilogy, and Lucian.
“When planning a heist, it’s good to learn from the masters, and it’s clear that Van Allen Plexico has: from Richard Stark to Lionel White to Ocean’s Eleven, the fingerprints of the greats are all over this smart, snappy casino job.” (Charles Ardai, editor, Hard Case Crime)
“Impossible to put down. Filled with twist and turns that you don’t see coming until the very end. It is a terrific read and one we highly recommend.” (Ron Fortier, Pulp Fiction Reviews)
