It's a novel about a man who was born and raised in Vegas. After high school he does three years in the Marine Corps, two years trying to become a movie star, and two years with the police department. Failing at these endeavors he opens his own Detective agency. He doesn't do well. After seven years being a ( rent-a-cop) and extra security at the casinos, he gets a chance to do a job for a casino owner. The book is not a "who done it," or a mystery novel, its one year in the life of an out of control bastard. He does some things he hates himself for, and some things he's proud of. He falls in love, makes a lot of money, and fights with his feelings every day. The reader will love him or hate him, but he's never boring or uninteresting.

Daniel Thompson (1935-2005) was a fine craftsman and poet laureate of Cuyahoga County in Ohio and was a poet/social activist all his life. He ranged far and near. He stood up for the homeless, the dispossessed. He gave them their daily bread, donated by local bakeries. He sought out the hungry on the streets and stocked the pantry at Saint Herman'S Church. He founded shelters for battered women, along with many other desperate characters who had his number. Daniel also protested nuclear armament in the 1950s; in 1961 he was a freedom rider, jailed in Jackson, Mississippi, then sent to Parchman Farm, a state prison; he was jailed nineteen times, mostly in the South. He marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King.
