A young woman plunges from a Las Vegas sightseeing helicopter, landing in the Pirate’s lagoon in front of the Treasure Island Hotel in the middle of the 8:30 Pirate Show.  Almost everyone writes her off as another Vegas victim.
But Lucky O’Toole smells a rat.  She’s head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, the newest, most opulent mega-casino and resort on the Strip, so she’s got a lot on her plate: the Adult Film industry’s annual awards banquet, a spouse-swapping convention, sex toy purveyors preying on the pocket-protector crowd attending ElectroniCon….  Still, Lucky can’t resist turning over a few stones.
When a former flame is one of the snakes she uncovers, Lucky’s certain she’s no longer dealing with an anonymous Sin City suicide.  To top it all off, Lucky’s best friend Teddie—Las Vegas’ finest female impersonator—presses to take their relationship to the next level.  Leave it to Lucky to attract a man who looks better in a dress than she does.
Lucky must manage the Babylon’s onslaught of outrageous festivities, solve a murder, and struggle to keep her life and libido from spinning out of control… not to mention keep her balance in six inch heels.

My Review:

What a great little mystery. When we meet the main character Lucky O’Toole she is witnessing what appears to be the suicide of a co-worker or was it murder? Lucky O’Toole has not been lucky in love but lucky in her job as head of customer relations of the Babylon a casino on the strip in Vegas. She has a best friend Teddie who performs in drag who wants more than anything to be something more than just a friend. The mysterious Dane Paxton who is not what he appears as the newest member of security, The Boss Man has put Lucky to find out Dane’s story. There is alot of blackmailing in this book and just when you think you have it figured out something else pops up. Also in town are the porn industry for an awards show, the swingers convention and much more. I love the interaction and banter that is Lucky. The author really did a great job of bring Vegas to a book. Some parts felt like watching CSI. This book was given to me by FSB Media for a honest and fair review and what a great read it was. I couldn’t put it down.
