I have received a free e-copy of the book Lost in Vegas by Ian Jones to review. To find out more about the author, you may see his facebook page.
Here is the book blurb.
John Smith is a man who solves problems, just don’t try to stop him. He is in Las Vegas trying to track down a missing woman, which should be a simple job. But he soon discovers he is not welcome, and there are those who want to make sure he leaves the city fast, in one way or another.
This book was written a while ago, but has recently been republished to coincide with the release of the second title in The Desert Thriller Series, North of the Rock.
John Smith has been hired in the UK by diamond multi-millionaire businessman Richard Cromwell and sons to go to Las Vegas to find his missing daughter Abby and hopefully also recover a million pounds from his ex-managing director Thomas who has also gone to ground in Vegas. No help has been forthcoming from Pablo Escola, son of Richard’s Vegas business associate Francesco, who retired without warning a couple of years ago. Why has 26 year old Abby run away with Thomas, who is 30 years older than her? Why is Pablo making threats? What has happened to Francesco?
John puts plans into place to book into about 10 different hotels in Vegas, including the Acropolis which is run by Pablo, before flying. Arriving at Vegas airport, he spots two thugs waiting for him on the concourse. He manages to put them both out of action by breaking their arms, but who knew he was coming?
John keeps moving two steps ahead of those searching for him, but keeps drawing a blank in his search for either Abby or Thomas. Where is she? Is she still alive? Who can he approach?
This is a real page-turner with loads of twists and turns in a great plot line.
Lost in Vegas is available on Amazon currently priced at £7.99 in paperback and is also available in Kindle format. A gripping read. Highly recommended. I’m certainly adding follow-up book North of the Rock to my list of books to read.
