Description


Set in glitzy Las Vegas, when the real estate bubble neared its peak and sub-prime lenders dealt painful fraud, this timely novel unmasks the human faces tortured by the crisis that almost took down America. The book’s theme says it all: Those seduced by greed can lose not only their money but also their sanity and their soul.

THE COPS: One cranky, one wistful. Meet Detective Frank Stetson and partner Billy Snow, each other’s alter egos and feisty foils. Stetson, a grumpy, burly ex-linebacker, barks at his team. Snow’s the softer side, witty and cool, but a solid sleuth; he moonlights as a screenwriter.

THE BODIES: Con artist Stanley Abbott and his brother Walter, bagman for their real estate scams. Walter is found headless and hanging upside down, limp as a jumbo shrimp, from a freeway billboard. When Stanley pushes one scam too far, his mark goes berserk, unleashing a unique weapon. The killer clearly enjoys prolonging Stanley’s agony during a two-chapter murder scene.

THE KILLERS: One accidental, one vengeful. Both snapped. Hounding these culprits, Stetson and Snow comb a construction site of ghost condos, plum the facade of a dusty mining town to search for stolen cash, and snare a fugitive in a chase that climaxes atop Hoover Dam. And evoking Michael Connelly’s Black Echo, a suspect is stalked in the dark, dank flood tunnels beneath the Vegas Neon.
