Purchased on BOOKBUB...love that site! This story has been reported and rehashed many times, in many formats, but the book was written in a way that still made this story interesting and held my attention.

Fascinating true crime..Dateline NBC covered this story. Recommended for true crime fans and those who like the glitz and seedy side of Vegas. It has is all, money, drugs, sex, lying, stealing, murder..
