What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas
Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of Max Allan Collins mix of fiction and fact with the Nate Heller series. With this entry Nate finds himself mixed up with the mob once again. After a series of events in Chicago, that results in the death of client, Nate travels west looking for Peggy, the niece and his former lover. Between LA and Vegas, Nate is pulled into the true life efforts of Ben "Bugsy" Siegel as attempts to open the lavish Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. The story is great and very entertaining until the last couple of chapters as Nate somehow is directly involved in the fate of Siegel. In previous encounters with real characters, Nate was usually on the sideline as real historical events unfolded. This time around, he is part of the outcome. I found that a little too much including a coincidental twist at the end that pointed back to early events in Chicago. With that said, it was overall still an enjoyable listen and I will be moving on to the next.

What made the experience of listening to Neon Mirage the most enjoyable?
Max Allan Collins paints pictures with words. Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.
What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Dan John Miller is an excellent narrator, perfect for Nathan Heller. He brings the character to life.
