Las Vegas Noir by Jarret Keene

Book Description

Las Vegas provides the classic sophistication and darkness necessary for a deadly noir story. Stylish, sultry, brimming with ambition and greed, the characters who populate this literary Las Vegas are pushed to the extremes of human experience. From the neon glitter of the Strip to the treacherous views of Red Rock Canyon and Boulder City, from the desperation of Naked City to the racial tensions of the Westside, no other location offers so many different avenues leading to serious trouble.

A biography of the rock group that has sold over 2 million copies of its debut album "Hot Fuss".

Underground Guide to Las Vegas by Jarret Keene Underground Guide to Las Vegas, Paperback (January 2005)
