Dragonfish
Robert is an Oakland cop who had been married to Suzy, a Vietnamese refugee for eight years, when following a night of domestic abuse, she leaves him. He finds out that she has married a man named Sonny who has broken her arm causing her once again to flee. He always found Suzy and her strange ways, reactions and emotional disturbances, difficult to understand. He goes to Las Vegas to seek her out and offer his help. His chance for atonement and understanding.

He finds more than he bargained for, but Suzy, this is not her Vietnamese name and her mysteries remain shrouded. A different kind of thriller, much action, the mystery of uncovering Suzy's past and some great characterizations. A glimpse into the seedier life of Las Vegas, it's casinos and its criminal enforcers. A more noirish, in your face style of book. I enjoyed this though, it was a change of pace from the normal run of serial killer thrillers. Maybe a bit like the late great Elmore Leonard type of no hold barred book.
