So Damn Lucky

Magician Dimitri Fortunoff appears to have a fatal accident during the final trick of the performance that marks the end of the forty year run of one of Las Vegas's most renowned burlesque shows. Soon after, his body disappears, and it's up to Lucky O'Toole to investigate. Head of Customer Relations for the Babylon resort, the crown jewel of the megaresorts dotting the Las Vegas Strip, Lucky has the brains and resources to find out what really happened to Fortunoff -- and why.

But the timing couldn't be worse. Her live-in lover, Teddie, has morphed into a rock star and has been swallowed whole by life on the road. Her mother, Mona -- pregnant, petulant, and perpetually underfoot -- is giving new meaning to the term "high maintenance." Paxton Dane, a handsome Texan long on charisma and short on history, is forcing himself into the void of Teddie's absence, and a suave French chef is proving to be equal parts charm and venom, seasoned with a dash of irresistible.

Did Dimitri Fortunoff really die, or is this an elaborate hoax? The trail leads Lucky through the miles of storm culverts under the city of Las Vegas, to the hordes of believers who gather for a glimpse of a UFO, then culminates on the catwalk above the crowd attending the annual Harry Houdini Seance, on Halloween, where Lucky must risk her life to catch a killer.

Las Vegas expert Deborah Coonts thrills again with this third installment in her dazzling series focused on casino "problem solver" Lucky O'Toole.
