Stephanie Caffrey


Stephanie Caffrey grew up in Wisconsin and has lived in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and London. Although she has traveled the world, her heart belongs to the thumping, degenerate pulse of a city that is Las Vegas. Having stayed at (or passed out in) nearly every casino-hotel on the Strip, she is recognized as an expert on all-things-Vegas, including where to find the best poker rooms, the most decadent foie gras-topped hamburger, and the most effective cure for a tequila-induced hangover. For a brief period in her early twenties, she may or may not have been a topless dancer. A constitutional lawyer by day, she is married with a young son, who will not be allowed to visit Las Vegas until he's forty.

Even Money (Raven McShane Mysteries #5)

Raven McShane has just about had it with her night job as an exotic dancer in Las Vegas. So when she gets wind of an investment that seems to be paying off big time, she thinks it could be her one-way ticket out of the seamy strip club lifestyle she's known so well. But soon after she forks over her money, Raven gets cold feet, thinking the whole thing might be too good to be true...and when another investor winds up dead, she's got a murder on her hands too! Now Las Vegas's most unusual detective must enlist her favorite muscle-bound accomplices for help tracking down the murderer and recovering her money at the same time. But after the main suspect disappears, she finds herself at a dead end until a tip from a cigar-chomping, bourbon-swilling old lady leads her on a sweltering trip south of the border. Hot on the trail of a killer, and wanted by Mexican law enforcement, can Raven outwit a con artist and live to tell about it?

Double Down (Raven McShane Mysteries #4)

Raven McShane, Las Vegas' sauciest private detective, is a lot of things: exotic dancer, shoe shopper, fad dieter, day drinker—just to name a few. But blackjack player? Not so much. And so when a new client asks her to infiltrate his card-counting ring to see who's skimming profits off the top, she's tasked with learning how to become a passable card player and fast! At first she's worried about being dragged heels-first out of the casinos, but soon enough she finds herself mixed up in a situation much bigger than just her client's little card-counting group. And the timing couldn't be worse, either, as it coincides with the increased romantic interest from a wealthy and powerful admirer. Can Raven solve a mystery, save herself, and ignite a new relationship all at once?

But now things don't quite add up, and she wants Raven to investigate Prince Charming's story. Along with her sexy, muscular sidekick, Raven suddenly finds herself chasing stories, making enemies, and putting herself in far more danger than she bargained for when her digging uncovers a sinister plot that goes way beyond happily-ever-afters. Raven may have more experience with platform heels than putting away bad guys but she's determined to stay one step ahead of trouble, solve a murder, and look fabulous the entire time!
