Vegas Lies - Book 3 - Review by Martha A. Cheves
Emma began to cry. Lucy nuzzled up against her in an effort to comfort her friend, but there was no comfort, just abject fear. If his hand being there had been so unpleasant, what would the other thing be like? Slowly the crying subsided, only to be replaced with anger. No, she wasn't going to let that happen to her. It would be far worse than death. She was going to find a way to escape, and if she couldn't, she was going to die.
Five young teenage girls from the small town of Vista, Oregon disappeared in the same night. At first it was thought that the five friends, who were coming home from a movie, had run away together, escaping the stifling atmosphere of small-town America. But once it was determined that they were all reasonably happy, fairly well-adjusted young people, the focus shifted to the unthinkable.
Peep was Mo's partner. Even though they didn't live together, they had been a couple for about five years. Peep was in Las Vegas for a trade show. Sabrina and Del are on their way to Las Vegas for a BookExpo. Sabrina, a best selling mystery author, hates the publicity that follows her but had agreed to take the trip and had also promised Mo that she and Del would meet Peep for dinner the night of their arrival. For some reason Peep never showed up.
As Author Andrew Cunningham combines the stories of the missing teenagers as well as the disappearance of Peep, the tension grows. Where is the connection between the missing girls and Peep? Can they all be found before it's too late? And who is behind the disappearances? These, plus many more questions popped into my head as I read, yet another, suspense filled book in this series.
So, if you enjoy a good page turner, full of twists and turns, don't miss out on this book. It's one that kept me up late at night reading just to see what happens next.
