“Witty, unrelenting, and tenacious, Lucky O'Toole runs the Babylon Casino in LasVegas. When a suspected murder kicks off a weekend filled with a sex industry convention, a swingers' retreat, and an adult film industry banquet, Lucky must add investigator to her repertoire. Wrangling the partygoers, pornographers, and murderers is enough to drive Lucky over the edge, but she holds on with sarcasm, passion, and just a smidge of romance.”
-- Megan Fecko, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Lyndhurst, OH
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 megacasino 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's 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.
