Mystery Police Procedural
In the bleak wasteland of the Nevada desert, not far from
the sparkling, 24-hour neon of the world famous Las Vegas
Strip, the body of a once-beautiiful showgirl is
discovered, horribly mauled and mutilated. It is a
horrendous crime, shocking in its brutality, excessive even
for a city celebrated for its excess. Seasoned police
veteran and Vegas native Detective Sergeant Romulus Poe has
seen his fair share of depravity in this mecca of glitz and
vice. But there is something about this unfortunate young
woman's death -- and in a similar murder that is to follow
soon after -- that harkens back to an unsolved slaying and
so-called suicide a quarter-century ago. The grim
similarities -- along with some frightening new
possibilities -- are leading Poe into a night world of dark
shadows best left unilluminated..and pulling the
inquisitive policeman toward secrets from a strange and
sordid past that could destroy those closest to him, and
drag him over the edge.
