A novel that is for an adult audience. It is devastatingly heartbreaking in parts but also shows the fighting spirit of the human soul. The mask is an illusion and the glamour that it conveys conceals the darkness.
In the summer of 1968, Ruby Wilde is the toast of Las Vegas. Showgirl of the Year, in her feathers and rhinestones, five-inch heels and sky-high headdresses, she mesmerises audiences from the Tropicana to the Stardust. Ratpackers and movie stars, gamblers and astronauts vie for her attention and shower her with gifts.
