Lucky Bastard

Deborah Coonts. Forge, $25.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-7653-3546-3
At the start of Coonts’s lively fourth Lucky O’Toole novel (after 2012’s So Damn Lucky), a young woman turns up dead on the hood of a sports car at the Ferrari dealership housed within Las Vegas’s swanky Babylon casino resort, where Lucky is the head of customer relations. Putting out fires is all part of a day’s work for Lucky, but after the appearance of a second body and then a third, she has to wonder whether she can handle all the drama. In addition, she must deal with her qualms about her burgeoning romantic relationship with the Babylon’s new chef, Jean-Charles, a charming Frenchman; the dogged persistence of her old flame, Teddie; and a dark-haired mystery woman in a dead woman’s red shoes. Lucky’s sass and snark make for fun reading, but the lack of urgency in her actions to find the killer dampens the mystery. Agent: Susan Gleason, Susan Gleason Literary Agency. (May)
