Publisher's Summary

Sin City. An artificial oasis of pleasure, spectacle, and entertainment, the gambling capital of America has reinvented itself so many times that it's doubtful that anyone knows for sure what's real and what isn't in the miles of neon and scorching heat. Las Vegas is considered the ultimate player's destination, no matter what your game. Almost anything is available - for a price, mind you - and sometimes losers will walk away from the tables with even less than just an empty wallet or purse; sometimes they don't walk away at all.

Las Vegas is the true city that never sleeps, where fortunes are made and lost every day, and where snake-eyes aren't found just on a pair of dice.

Contributors include James Swain, S. Z. Rozan, Wendy Hornsby, Michael Collins, T. P. Keating, J. Madison Davis, Sue Pike, Joan Richter, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Tom Savage, Edward Wellin, K.j.a. Wishnia, Linda Kerslake, John Wessel, Lise McClendon, Ronnie Klaskin, Ruth Cavin, A. B. Robbins, Gay Toltl Kinman, Micki Marz, Rick Mofina, and Jeremiah Healy.

Tedious

I love Michael Connelly, but didn't realize this book would have so little of his own work in it. Some stories were good. This was the only audio book I quit listening to before it was done. Waste of a credit.

I Didn’t realize that Michael Connelly hadn’t written this and the author that did was very boring

No real point to it

This is a group of shirt stories that you hope may connect to eachother in some way and yet doesn't. It is as interesting as reading college essays...one after the other after the other. I had to quit listening

Lame Collection, Cringeworthy Performance

Michael Connelly is a formidable writer and his own books are reliably voiced by talented performers.
I suggest that, in future, he resist temptation to add his name to projects of this calibre.

Awful

These folks have somehow taken the most exciting place in the world and made it boring.
Couldn't finish it.

Boring Pointless Stories

So disappointing.. I wanted to like this book.. I live in Las Vegas.. but its just one boring story after another. Its intolerable. My recommendation is to skip this one.. I asked for a refund.

Just terrible

I kept listening, hoping I’d get one good story. Not one. I appreciate that Michael Connelly edited them, but the stories fell flat for me. So sorry.
