      Temple Barr, publicist extraordinaire, is itching to bring off her most dangerous and exciting assignment, helping to launch an endeavor that many a Vegas showmen have dreamed of: a Las Vegas mob museum/casino.

    While city powers-that-be hem and haw over doing an official exhibit on the subject, the Family Fontana plans to connect two hotels with a “Chunnel of Crime” featuring an underground speakeasy, a fast “ride” through Vegas crime history by Gangsters custom limo sevice, and other fun attractions. Temple’s grand scheme to do a live “opening Bugsy Siegel’s vault” media event built around a huge buried safe found underground produces a two-day-old body wearing white tie and tails.

    With Temple’s magician-counterterrorist ex-lover, Max, gone missing and her new fiancé, radio shrink Matt Devine, in Chicago for a week-long media gig, Temple must depend on “the Vegas Strip Irregulars,” a posse of cats, to solve murders old and new that smack of mobs vintage and all too contemporary. Success, or failure, could cost Temple her life, and all nine of Louie’s.
