Rats of Las Vegas | [Lisa Pasold]

Rats of Las Vegas

Millard Lacouvy is a short, plain, fiercely independent prodigy in the male world of poker. She learns her craft in Depression-era Vancouver and then graduates to high-stakes games on the Canadian Pacific Railway. When the trains fail to satisfy either her ambition or her need for security, she goes to Bugsy Siegel’s Las Vegas. There she is haunted by the handsome conman she has known all her life, and learns that love can also be a game of chance. Along the way, Pasold gives us a rich and convincing historical portrait of Vancouver and Vegas in the ’40s.

Audible Editor Reviews

Rats of Las Vegas follows young poker prodigy Millard Lacouvy as she learns her trade in Depression-era Vancouver before moving on to higher stakes games that lead her all the way to Las Vegas. Lisa Pasold's writing is full of vivid, historical detail, including scenes of dingy saloons and sleek trains that are brought to life by Donna Postel. Postel is most expert at putting the listener in Millard's shoes as she tries to assert herself as a young woman in a predominantly male world, capturing her defiantly independent attitude.
