Rate this book
When a crazy, seemingly harmless old homeless woman, Rebecca Lambert, pilfers private information from Nevada's most powerful political figures, she sets in motion a choatic, far reaching chain of events. Before long, a treacherous game of identity theft unfolds that could change the country's laws forever.Mitch Wilson, a talented young auto painter, makes a innocent stop under the overpass to check out an antique car. Nearby he finds Greg Hart, a bottle of whiskey crammed between his legs, and a stolen pistol lying on the shredded upholstery of his Olds '98. The loss of his home, job and family have brought the husband and father to the brink of despair. Mitch, in a desperate attempt to save the drunken man's life, throws himself through the open car window, and seizes the gun-only to find himself on the run from the law, accused of armed robbery.Meanwhile, things heat up on a larger scale when wise-guy Vinnie Domenico, a mafia king wannabe, struggling to establish family in the Las Vegas Casino business, offers Mitch a job that's just to good to be good. When Mitch turns him down, Vinnie comes unglued. After being set up for the murder of his friend and undercover federal agent Mike Hutchings, Mitch is soon caught in the middle of a game he hadn't bargained for. As the explosive an deadly roulette wheel spins more and more out of control, Mitch comes to realize how a single wrong move could cost him his life, not to mention that of his pregnant wife Stephanie.Suddenly, Las Vegas seems anything but the fun capital of the world.
