Publisher's Summary

"Evanovich...with a dash of CSI." (Publishers Weekly)

Everyone has a hidden talent.

For Lucky O'Toole it's murder...solving it.

Surviving in Sin City takes cunning, a pair of five-inch heels, and a wise-ass attitude. Lucky has mastered them all and has a pair of legs she uses to kick butt and turn heads.

As the Chief Problem Solver for the Babylon, Las Vegas's most over-the-top destination, mischief is in her job description.

She's good at her job.

She's less good at life. But who has time for a life when there's a killer on the loose?

Lucky Stiff

Someone fed Numbers Neidermeyer to the tiger shark in the tank at Mandalay Bay resort.

Lucky's friend, the beautiful Jeremy Whitlock, is suspect Numero Uno.

Miss P, Jeremy's squeeze and Lucky's partner in crime, is in a tailspin.

A tractor-trailer full of honeybees jackknifes on the Strip in front of the Babylon, spilling its load.

The district attorney - apparently the odd man out in a threesome - is hiding in the buff in a laundry room.

And Lucky's mother decides to auction a young woman's virginity.

Can Lucky get Jeremy out of the hot seat, handle the new hot French chef and her mother...and restore order in her life?

An interview with Deborah Coonts

Why did you decide to write humor?

I'm not sure I decided to add snark to the Lucky books, specifically to Lucky's own voice, it just happened that way. When I was a kid, my mouth always got me into trouble. Finally, I've found a way to harness the sarcasm for the Forces of Good - or at least in a way not to anger my grandmother. And when Lucky started talking to me, she had a strong dose of sass in her.

The Lucky O'Toole Vegas Adventure series is hard to categorize. Is that by design?

When I set out to write Wanna Get Lucky?, I knew I wanted to write a romp through Las Vegas. I had the characters and the setting but no real understanding of narrative drive. So, I threw a young woman out of a tour helicopter into the middle of the pirate show and let the story unfold. A bit of murder to keep the plot moving, some wisecracking and Vegas mischief to make you laugh, and some romance to keep it interesting. A bit of a mash up, but it works.

Formulaic

Even though this series is very predictable I still had fun listening to it. Funny.
