Fans of spellbinding whodunits and Midwest charm find infinite delight in Susan Rogers Cooper's Sheriff Milt Kovak mysteries. All the good sheriff of Prophecy County, Oklahoma, wanted out of his well-earned vacation to Las Vegas was some fun and relaxation. Milt certainly didn't gamble on finding his own kin embroiled in murder and battery-but that's exactly what he's dealt in Vegas Nerve.

"In this installment of Cooper's Milt Kovak series, the Oklahoma sheriff visits Las Vegas, where he finds himself entangled in a murder investigation. Milt's cousin by marriage, Burl, has been arrested for beating up his son-in-law. After Milt bails him out of jail, Burl disappears, and the son-in-law is found murdered. Narrator Tom Stechschutle offers a powerful performance that enlivens Cooper's novel, especially in his portrayal of Burl's five bickering sons, whose efforts to help actually impede Milt's investigation. Stechschulte speaks with a regional accent that is as gritty and hard-nosed as the state of Oklahoma. With slight shifts in tone, he creates spot-on characters--at once friendly, realistic, and altogether frightening. While the story itself leaves something to be desired, Stechschutle's narration makes listening to it downright fun. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
