Best-selling author Susan Rogers Cooper is renowned for creating wildly entertaining characters and perfectly orchestrated mysteries. In this lively - and side-splitting - entry in her Milt Kovak series, all manner of crazy happenings go down in and around Prophesy County, Oklahoma. Deputy Dalton Pettigrew travels to meet the woman making his heart go pitter-patter - but she turns out to be a man! And then a murder really shakes things up.
All the good sheriff of Prophecy County, Oklahoma, wanted out of his well-earned vacation to Las Vegas was some fun and relaxation. Milt certainly didn't gamble on finding his own kin embroiled in murder and battery: but that's exactly what he's dealt in Vegas Nerve.
"A great listen!"
