This thesis is a viable novel in progress, and the culmination of nearly a year of writing and many revisions throughout. It tells the tale of the dark side, of murder and mayhem and all things noir, set against a seedy Las Vegas backdrop, somewhere in time between 1987- 1997.
Our novel begins when all hell breaks lose as Kasey, a twenty-something dancer, finds herself caught up in the aftermath of the unexpected murder of a good friend and fellow dancer, and the unwieldy demands of a shady boss and club owner. Her and her friends risk everything as they try to unravel the drama, and her world gets even more complicated when her uncle, an ex-con from Indiana, shows up looking for all kinds of trouble. The drama escalates as the body count rises and Kasey and friends risk everything, trying to unravel the pieces and stay in one piece while doing it.
