)-- Author Donna Foley Mabry celebrates the release today of "The Las Vegas Sophisticate," sixth in her Alexandra Merritt Mystery Series. "The Las Vegas Sophisticate" continues the saga of the feisty, redheaded Alex, and the cast of Vegas characters that surround the young casino owner.
From the book jacket:
"In hopes of bringing the high rollers back to Downtown, Mayor Oscar Goodman plans to build a high-rise, glittering casino. He invests everything he has to buy the property and raises the rest of the money from old friends–friends he once defended in court. If his plan doesn’t succeed, he stands to lose more than his life savings.
"On opening day, things go wrong, and those responsible wind up dead. Detectives Sam Howard and Jessica Chalmers begin to wonder… Is the Mayor a possible victim, or is he the prime suspect?"
"A sizzling Sin City whodunit." –Norm Clarke, Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist
"Thank heaven this isn’t true!" –Oscar Goodman, 3-term Mayor of Las Vegas, Attorney, Author, Actor and Restaurateur
