Literary agent Charlie Greene has too much going on work and at home, between placating crotchety client trying to sell books during tough times, and dealing with her teenage daughter and widowed mother. So vacationing Las Vegas sounds like heaven to her -- until she witnesses murder on the Las Vegas strip. Then, the ante is upped when the only cop who hears her eyewitness account is killed in a "accident".Before Charlie's vacation is over, this complex and marvelously drawn case will involve corrupt casino owners and the henchman, a foolishly arrogant film director, a psychic gamble and an oddball assortment of characters obsessed with Area 5. All in all, it's Marlys Millhiser at her quirky best.
