Patrick Shanahanabout this book: Vegas Pursuit (Fleeing Sin City), is the sequel to the hilarious Cupid's Pursuit and once again follows the misadventures of the central character Matthew Malarkey. Set in the city of Las Vegas, Vegas Pursuit is a contemporary 'lads on tour' story that unfolds around the simple desire to celebrate a big birthday. But when Matthew unintentionally finds himself in possession of half a million dollars of somebody else's money and his best friend, Cecil Delaney, then loses it, the trip turns into a nightmare of confusion and panic. Pursued by a number of shady characters and distracted by the glamorous ladies of Sin City, Matthew finds himself in a race against time, gambling with a much bigger stake than he had expected – his life.
The main aim with the Pursuit titles is to inject some fun into a world of serious books and create light, undemanding tales that will appeal to an audience looking for a fun read. With Vegas Pursuit the story moves away from the 'romcom' elements of Cupid's Pursuit through a number of twists and comical situations that will appeal to both male and female readers alike.
I spent Easter of 2012 in Vegas exploring locations and soaking up the atmosphere of a unique city. You have to see Vegas to get the full on vibe and although the plot is quite specific, the story rides along on that special Vegas feel.
