商品説明

Las Vegas Stripped is a thriller written in the hard-boiled style of the early Noir masters Hammett and Chandler, whose novels were turned into such classic films as The Maltese Falcon and The Brass Key. The story features Jake, an ex-cowboy stuntman who becomes entangled in the intrigues of three gorgeous but devious women. Roped in by her older sister into searching for a missing heiress about to inherit millions, his efforts take him on a tour of the town, from mega-resorts on the Strip to seedier Downtown locales and various strip clubs.

His first-person observations are enlivened with a frequently caustic wit and a deep knowledge of the strange history of Vegas. Along the way, his efforts to find Banff are complicated by the actions of a revenge-minded rodeo cowboy, a hotel security guard and a jealous boyfriend. His success in finding the young woman, far from resolving matters, will lead to events revealing that almost nothing is as it seemed. That's when things get complicated.

Meanwhile, he discovers something disturbing about the actress in from L.A. whom he thought was just a random pick-up. Now he's involved with three beguiling women, each of whom is finding ways to trouble him. Unlike in classic Noir novels, though, our hero breaks from the tradition of stoicism to reveal his torments and pain. It may not be pretty, but it's pretty darn entertaining. So too are the humorous dialogues that are peppered throughout the book.

Jake had come to town because he had latched onto what he had hoped was a sign that he was about to get lucky in love. But now the circumstances between him and Allie, Banff and Cassie are far more inscrutable than any simple A, B, C. And then he gets jumped by one of the guys who has had an eye out for him. This is the first vivid fight in the book that he can't just walk away from.

Events quickly spiral further out of control as the pacing of the action quickens relentlessly. Ultimately, Jake will find his emotions twisted by doubts, not just about the dangerous assumptions he has made but what he should do to make things right.
