“A Gripping Las Vegas Thriller” is the second book that follows detectives Laura Baxter and Jack Holt who are members of Las Vegas’ Metro Police Department.

Casino Girl has them following into the murder of an 18-year old exotic dancer, Crystal, that delves into high stakes gambling to include murder. The dynamics between Laura and Jack are well-written and they make for an amazing detective team; the comradery and trust along with their own secrets make these two characters very interesting for me. As they hunt between the layers of the murder and powerful people involved, the author keeps you guessing the entire time. The number of suspects keeps increasing along with sub-plots in this twist of thriller and suspense. Sub-plots even include separate investigations into one of them (no spoilers here) being a dirty cop!

Very well thought out vivid writing by Leslie Wolfe! Highly recommend even if you haven’t read the first book in this series, Las Vegas Girl; can easily be read as a standalone in my opinion. Ready to read the third now, Las Vegas Crime!
