      by Charles Bock.     Random House 

      “In this auspicious debut novel, Bock paints a vivid and harrowing portrait of life in the shadows of the Las Vegas Strip.  A missing child opens the door to an underground world in which the lines betwen victims and prey blur as a cast of runaways, hustlers, and desperate survivors intersect in often surprising, but always revealing ways.  Bock’s ear for street dialogue and sensitivity to the despair of rootlessness are spot on.  The vivid rendering of life in modern West offers cause for both hope and despair.”- Bruce Dinges
