Lucky O’Toole, the newly promoted vice president of Customer Relations for the Babylon, Las Vegas's primo Strip property, has never met a problem she couldn't handle. But when a young woman is found dead, sprawled across the hood of a new, bright red Ferrari California in the Babylon's on-site dealership, a Jimmy Choo stiletto stuck in her carotid, Lucky's skills are maxed out.

Of course, her life is already on overload. Her mother, Mona, is pregnant, hormonal, and bored—a triple threat. A song that Teddie, Lucky's former lover, wrote for her is getting national airplay as he hits the talk shows, pleading for her forgiveness. Lucky is less than amused by the high-powered "infotainment" spotlight on her personal life. She's having enough trouble fending off Chef Jean-Charles Bouclet, the Babylon's tasty new dish.

All of this and The Smack-Down Poker tournament, the second-largest poker tournament in the world, is holding its final round at the Babylon. Hookers, thieves, players, cheaters, media, and hangers-on descend, looking to win or to score. When one of the players turns up dead, Lucky starts to make connections between the two murders, putting her in the crosshairs of the killer.

Then, just when she's losing control... life deals another major complication to her personal life... and it's not going to be pretty.

In Deborah Coonts' Lucky Bastard, Lucky struggles to keep her life in balance, and a murderer from killing again.

“Wow, talk about killer heels.” The words were out of my mouth before I could stop them. I dropped my head for a moment, then recovered. “I can’t believe I said that.”
Openmouthed, I stared at the body of a young woman sprawled across the hood of a candy-apple red Ferrari on display in our dealership, the heel of one of this holiday season’s signature Jimmy Choos embedded in her neck.
“I can,” growled Paxton Dane, the man who had summoned me to the scene and the only other living, breathing human within shouting

About the Author

Deborah Coonts

DEBORAH COONTS’ mother tells her she was born in Texas a very long time ago, though she’s not totally sure—her mother can’t be trusted. But she was definitely raised in Texas on barbecue, Mexican food, and beer. She currently resides in Las Vegas, where family and friends tell her she can’t get into too much trouble. Silly people. Coonts has built her own business, practiced law, flown airplanes, written a humor column for a national magazine, and survived a teenager. She is the author the Lucky O'Toole Las Vegas Adventures, including Wanna Get Lucky?, Lucky Stiff, So Damn Lucky, and Lucky Bastard.
