Synopses & Reviews
Lucky OToole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks its just another night in Las Vegas. A tractor-trailer has spilled its load of a million honeybees, blocking not only the Strip but the entrance to her hotel...the District Attorney for Clark County—apparently the odd man out of a threesome on the twelfth floor—is hiding in the buff in one of the hotels laundry rooms...and Numbers Neidermeyer—one of Vegas less-than-savory oddsmakers—is arguing with Las Vegas ace private investigator, the Beautiful Jeremy Whitlock.
The next day, Lucky discovers Ms. Neidermeyer was tossed into the shark tank at the Mandalay Bay Resort as a snack for the Tiger Shark. When the police show up at the Babylon with a hastily prepared search warrant, applied for by the District Attorney himself, and Jeremy lands in the hot seat, Lucky realizes her previous night was far from routine.
Amid the chaos of fight weekend, the hiring of an eccentric new French chef, and her madam mother's intentions to auction off a young womans virginity, Lucky is drawn into a deadly game where no one is what they seem, a game that will end only when she discovers who made fish-food out of Numbers Neidermeyer.
Lucky OToole and Fabulous Las Vegas—life doesnt get any better.
“Las Vegas is the perfect setting for this witty tale of misdirection and larger-than-life characters. Fans of J. A . Konraths Jack Daniels series will love this.”
—Library Journal, starred review on Lucky Stiff
“Coonts covers Sin City territory with a dash of CSI and Janet Evanovich in her second glitzy, lighthearted novel.”
—Publishers Weekly on Lucky Stiff
“Deliciously raunchy, with humorous takes on sexual proclivities, Vegas glitz and love, though Agatha Christie is probably spinning in her grave.”
—Kirkus Reviews on Wanna Get Lucky?
“This is chick-lit gone wild and sexy, lightly wrapped in mystery and tied up with a brilliantly flashing neon bow.... Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot.”
“Funny, fast-paced, exuberant and brilliantly realized.”
—Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author, on Wanna Get Lucky?
