Robert, a rugged Oakland cop, still can't let go of Suzy, the mysterious Vietnamese wife who left him. Now she's disappeared from her new husband, Sonny, a violent Vietnamese smuggler and gambler who blackmails Robert into finding her for him. Pursuing Suzy through the glitzy, sleazy gambling dens of Las Vegas, Robert finds himself chasing the past that haunts Suzy - one that extends back to a refugee camp in Malaysia after the fall of Saigon.

I enjoyed the very specific and accurate descriptions of Vegas. I don't read much noir, but this novel made me want to explore the genre even more, which is one of the reasons I find it so successful. I highly recommend this book.
