✱✱AudioBook Review✱✱ A Death in Vegas by Christopher Meeks

A Death in Vegas
By: Christopher Meeks
Narrated by: Bill Perry

In A Death in Vegas, the president of a company that specializes in beneficial bugs for organic gardeners discovers a young woman dead in his Las Vegas hotel suite. She had worked as a sexy lady bug at his convention booth - and he had nothing to do with her death. While that’s being investigated, the FBI raids his booth on a money-laundering scam, which he knows nothing about either. Soon, the coroner doesn’t have good news. The police and FBI are against him - and his wife cannot be found. He flees to find answers and his wife.

“With his tongue planted firmly in cheek, Christopher Meeks spins a charming and surprisingly sexy tale of murder, betrayal, and the importance of beneficial insects.” (Mark Haskell Smith, author of Baked and Raw: A Love Story)

“I've never, ever wanted to go to Vegas. I don't care if what happens there, stays there. But Christopher Meeks makes me want to go so I can find out who done it. A fun, exciting listen, with Chris's usual wonderful writing and great sense of humor. “ (Jessica Barksdale Inclan, author of Her Daughter's Eyes and How to Bake a Man)

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

A Death in Vegas is more fun whodunit than gripping murder mystery or thriller, but it did keep me entertained for a few hours. It's a pretty quick listen, about 5 or 6 hours total listening time, so it's not a big investment on time, but it is well-paced so it feels like a faster read than it actually is. Patton is a likable character, and Bill Perry's pleasant voice just works for him. Christopher Meeks is new to me, but I certainly appreciate his wit and it comes through loud and clear in this story. As I mentioned, this is a quick listen, so rather than give spoilers, I'll just say that this quick-witted mystery is an entertaining read and I'll be interested to see what this author does next.
