A Death in Vegas by Christopher Meeks Review
A Death in Vegas immediately grabs you within the first few pages. The story flows and introduces you to each character as the pages go forward. The story focuses on Patton Burch, the president of Ben Bugs. While at a Bug convention in Las Vegas, Patton awakes to a dead girl in his hotel room that played a sexy lady bug for his convention the day before. Not sure what to do he calls the security, who then get the police involved.
With his wife missing; in his somewhat shaky marriage, he is now on a quest to find out what happened to the girl in his room. Is her name really Chatterley? Why was she frightened the night before her death? Was her death due to her asthma? Or was she possibly murdered. All Patton knows is he didn’t kill her and now has to figure out who did.
Patton is easy to like right from the start and I felt myself feeling sorry for him. In a sense I starting routing for him with all of his luck not going his way. I found this mystery to not only be a mystery but a mystery dosed with a bit of comedy.
I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a great mystery. It is worth the read and you can find the information below on where you can purchase your copy!
I am giving it 5 Stars and I am sure you will too!
