Lucky O’Toole, the newly promoted vice president of customer relations for the Babylon, Las Vegas’s primo strip property, has never met a problem she couldn’t handle. But when a young woman is found dead, sprawled across the hood of a new, bright-red Ferrari California in the Babylon’s on-site dealership, a Jimmy Choo stiletto stuck in her carotid, Lucky’s skills are maxed out.
Of course her life is already on overload. Her mother, Mona, is pregnant, hormonal, and bored - a triple threat. A song that Teddie, Lucky’s former lover, wrote for her is getting national airplay as he hits the talk shows, pleading for her forgiveness. Lucky is less than amused by the high-powered "infotainment" spotlight on her personal life. She’s having enough trouble fending off Chef Jean-Charles Bouclet, the Babylon’s tasty new dish.
All of this and The Smack-Down Poker tournament, the second-largest poker tournament in the world, is holding its final round at the Babylon. Hookers, thieves, players, cheaters, media, and hangers-on descend, looking to win or to score. When one of the players turns up dead, Lucky starts to make connections between the two murders, putting her in the crosshairs of the killer.
After a revelation by someone close to her sends her world reeling even further, Lucky struggles to keep her life in balance, and a murderer from killing again as bodies pile up.
Then, just when she’s losing control…life deals another major complication to her personal life…and it’s not going to be pretty.
Lucky struggles to keep her life in balance, and a murderer from killing again as bodies pile up.

I'm so disappointed with this installment. The main character whined throughout the entire story. She was supposed to be a strong, independent woman. Now the author portrays her as an emerging, horny alcoholic. I don't know if I want to continue this series. I'm just disgusted with the turn of events.
I am an hour into this book waiting for some of the glowing reviews that lead me to download it to be reflected in the content. This is my first experience with Audible Books that I feel ripped off and looking for a means in which to get a refund.
Reviews written by people that have listened to the book.
Nick Monday is the PR Director for a Vegas hotel that is totally self-centered and fills her dialog with how everyone around her stupid, sexually attracted to her, dumber and an example of one of her endless cliches.
