    Cooper, a veteran journalist and radio host, begins with the destruction of the last vestige of old Las Vegas, the Desert Inn where the Rat Pack frolicked, demolished in 2001. Now hotels are operated by corporations, not mobsters; casinos are as much about entertainment as gambling; and the town is decidedly family friendly. But, as Cooper discovered, some things about the city never change. What makes this profile of Las Vegas fascinating is the way it works on two levels. As Cooper goes about showing us the remade city, he also falls prey to the allure of the old Vegas, sinking so deeply into his story that he becomes a part of it, just another gambler pulled into the seductive world of the city that never sleeps. New Journalism meets the New Vegas. 248 pgs, paperback, 2004
