Las Vegas Girl is the newest crime novel by author Leslie Wolfe. Taking a break from her primarily Florida based police procedurals, this newest tale takes place in Sin City. Recent arrival Detective Laura Baxter is teamed up with veteran Detective Jack Holt to investigate the murder of a young woman at the posh Aquamarine hotel. With the victim identified as the sister of the Governor’s fiancé, the duo is under strict orders from the Deputy Chief to steer clear of the family. With both officers on probation for previous issues, they cannot afford to mess up, but they also cannot be expected to solve this case when both their DC and the Judge assigned appear to be stonewalling them. With a little ingenuity and some extracurricular detective work, the duo uncovers the details of a scandal years in the making that may very well shake the foundations of the Las Vegas Metro PD.
With the Las Vegas strip being one of the most recognizable places on Earth and having watched many a CSI episode in the past, it was fairly easy for me to immerse myself in the story. Leslie’s newest protagonist, Detective Laura Baxter, is a British transplant with a tragic past and anger management issues. I totally love her drive to get the bad guy no matter what it takes. Detective Holt also isn’t squeaky clean and harbors a secret that could ruin his career at best and send him to jail at worst. The unlikely duo is a good pair and it was interesting to watch them try to feel each other out as first-time partners while trying to skirt the political landmines of their high-profile case. With as complex as these two characters are, each keeping secrets and buried traumas to themselves I am hoping that this is the first in a series of books involving the pair. There will always be crime in Las Vegas and I’m hoping Baxter and Holt will stick around to take the bad guys down.
If you like books with a strong female lead who is smart, flawed and just a little bit devious I would recommend Las Vegas Girl or any other title by Leslie Wolfe.
I can't wait to read the series involving the Brit turned American. Her hot partner and their relationship is intense yet doesn't overshadow the story.
I love it!
I would have given this 5 stars but was not really comfortable how the detectives , supposedly law-abiding, manipulated and unlawfully came by some clues.I guess it happens and may have been for the right reasons but still not right. Just my opinion.
I enjoyed reading this story, very interesting, fast moving with several twists and turns. I did figure out half way through who the 3rd man was, but it didn't take away from the story.
If there is not a waiting line to negotiate movie rights, then there is an IQ problem in Hollywood, because this novel is perfectly made for a smart bunch of film-makers and actors to make money and win awards. The characters are that good, and the plot is perfect for a movie or for the pilot of a television series. Amazon Video, are you awake? Or, is that perhaps too much to ask of a company run by mediocre algorithms? But, I digress. . .
In this book, Wolfe does an excellent job of revealing the personalities and backgrounds of the characters gradually, in sync with the unfolding plot. The need to continue to turning pages increases with each chapter, and by the very satisfying end of the story, you'll likely want to keep reading about the lead characters and what they do both during the day and at night! This could go in a lot of different directions from here, and it will be very much fun to go along for the ride if the author gives us the opportunity.
