About this item

A working girl is found dead in the desert. Can a calendar girl uncover the truth? In this prequel to GETTING OFF ON FRANK SINATRA, it's Christmastime in Sin City. Aspiring journalist Copper Black meets Victoria McKimber, an outspoken prostitute at one of Nevada's legal brothels. She's offered Copper the exclusive right to tell her story. Not only will the Las Vegas Light's "calendar girl" get a byline, but she can also impress her boyfriend and parents when they arrive for the holidays. Copper is busy with work, Christmas shopping, and fantasizing about a whole week with her long-distance boyfriend. She's also helping her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is spearheading plans for a new center to serve the homeless. Things are hectic but under control when shocking news breaks.

About the Author

Megan Edwards

I never once thought I'd ever call Las Vegas home, but here I am. My journey to southern Nevada began when a wildfire destroyed my house in the hills above Pasadena, California. All my stuff was gone, too, so it seemed like a convenient time to do something different for a while. My husband, dog, and I loaded ourselves into a motorhome and set forth on what we thought would be a six-month trip around the country. It morphed into a six-year odyssey all over North America. It ended in 1999 in the one place I never dreamed it would: Las Vegas, Nevada. I thought I was just here for a quick visit, but it turned out I was on a blind date with my new hometown. Las Vegas is not only a delightful place to live, it's a great place to write.
