What Really Happens in Vegas

Discover the infamous city as you’ve never seen it before




The notorious city as you've never seen it before. This non-fiction title featuring original interviews gets to the heart and soul of this desert metropolis - as well as its seedy underbelly.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas - until now.

Whether you're a Vegas regular or have only heard the city's tales through whispers, this book will surprise and astound you . . . It's not just the five-star dining, or the casinos, or the clubs, or the crowds. It's the electrifying chemistry of America's most round-the-clock city.

In this dazzling 24-hour journey, James Patterson lifts the lid on America's notorious hub of gambling and excess. Fuelled by original interviews and in-depth reporting, What Really Happens in Vegas uncovers the vice, crime and entertainment that made Sin City an infamous desert mecca.

This is Vegas as you've never seen it before, filled with unbelievable stories from the people who make the city tick, simmer - and even explode.
