Had a chance to tag along on a trip to Las Vegas last week so I picked up Stripped by Brian Freeman to read while I was there.
The second book in what is so far a 4-book series featuring Detective Jonathan Stride, the fast-paced Stripped throws the former lieutenant from Duluth, Minnesota into the world of glitzy, gritty Las Vegas streets and casinos, where everything happens at night and high rollers walk side by side with criminals. Working the case for Metro Homicide, Stride and his new partner Amanda have to track a vicious killer before he strikes again.
As the lurid orange cover warns you, this is no cozy mystery to read snuggled up with a cup of cocoa. Pour yourself a stiff one before you start reading and save yourself the plane fare to Las Vegas.
