Welcome to Crime Vegas

 

Spending the night next to a dead woman had never been Lizzy's plan. Worse, she couldn't remember the woman or how she got where she was found. Suddenly she found herself in hospital and from there she was taken straight to Las Vegas Police Department, interrogated about the murder of the woman, she had been found next to. If only she could remember how all of this could happen.

A killer didn't fall asleep next to the victim, getting her blood all over her body. A killer also didn't let one woman live after he killed the second one in front of her. Or did the killer not care about the passed-out woman on the bed? Or was it the woman, who pretended she couldn't remember anything? Detective Jorja Harper had to find out and her first suspect is Lizzy Taylor, niece of a Las Vegas mobster – and the woman, who they found passed-out next to the dead influencer.

And then a second influencer is killed and again Lizzy is involved in the case.

 

Jorja doesn't believe in coincidence.
