“Getting Off on Frank Sinatra” is a fun rollercoaster ride of a read with many surprising twists and turns. Just when you think the mystery is solved, you find out there is a whole lot more to the story. Besides keeping me on the edge of my seat, it is also very funny. I started out laughing out loud at the first paragraph:
My life in Las Vegas improved dramatically when I started getting off on Frank Sinatra…”I’d like to get off on Dean Martin too, but I just can’t. And in case you’re interested, Mel Torme is too short, Hugh Hefner is a dead end, and I can never remember if Jerry Lewis goes both ways.”
As a Las Vegas resident myself, it was entertaining to hear the veiled references to local landmarks and history. I found aspiring reporter Copper Black to be relatable as she weaves through familiar Las Vegas settings like “The V” where you can sample wine “do it yourself” style and “Cal’s Town on Boulder Highway”. Of course there has to be an old house with a mobster back story too! You can see Megan Edwards’ in-depth expertise about Las Vegas woven throughout the book.
I enjoyed the reading by Em Eldrige as well. She did a great job of capturing Copper Black’s emotions and voice.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys comedy, mystery or stories about Las Vegas!
