LAS VEGAS - Oct. 3, 2016 - PRLog -- BOOK RELEASE: OCTOBER 11, 2016


Forty million people visit Vegas every year but most never get past the strip. What about the people who live there? What brought them there? What keeps them there?

Told from the perspective of a seasoned blackjack dealer, The Investment Club tells the stories of a self-destructive, dwarf entrepreneur; a drug-addicted musical performer-turned-stripper; a retired, widowed New Jersey policeman; a bereaved, divorced female sportscaster; and a card-counting, former Catholic priest before and after their fateful meeting at the El Cortez Casino in downtown Vegas.

From the award-winning author of Outside In comes a gripping novel of strength, determination, and surprising humanity, all set on the blistering streets of the City of Sin.
