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.

    " Uneven collection of short crime novellas set in Vegas...Some are very good, others, not so much. "

    " It was hard to give this an overall rating because it is a series of short stories edited by Michael Connelly. Some were very good and others were at the other end of the spectrum. I guess I like longer stories(novels) where I get more involved with the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 7/13/2013

    " Overall, I expected the short stories to be of better quality than they were. While there are a handful of good stories, more than a fair share lack top notch interest and far less interesting than novels because some stories are too short. 5 of 10 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suby | 2/29/2012

    " Its a collection of short stories, all based n Las Vegas, written by several authors over several years and now edited into a single book by Connelly. As with all short story collections this book too contains some memorable stories and several mediocre ones.Some are simply forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillis | 9/1/2010

    " These were some good stories. Stories of greed, betrayal, and money. Not all stories start in Vegas but they sure end there. "
