Crissy Dowling has created a world that suits her perfectly. She passes her days by the pool in a private cabana, she splurges on ice cream but never gains an ounce, and each evening she transforms into a Princess, performing her musical cabaret inspired by the life of the late Diana Spencer. Some might find her strange or even delusional, an American speaking with a British accent, hair feathered into a style thirty years old, living and working in a casino that has become a dated trash heap. On top of that, Crissy’s daily diet of Adderall and Valium leaves her more than a little tipsy, her Senator boyfriend has gone back to his wife, and her entire career rests on resembling a dead woman. And yet, fans see her for the gifted chameleon she is, showering her with gifts, letters, and standing ovations night after night. But when Crissy’s sister, Betsy, arrives in town with a new boyfriend and a teenage daughter, and when Richie Morley, the owner of the Buckingham Palace Casino, is savagely murdered, Crissy’s carefully constructed kingdom comes crashing down all around her. A riveting tale of identity, obsession, fintech, and high-tech mobsters, The Princess of Las Vegas is an addictive, wildly original thriller from one of our most extraordinary storytellers.

PRAISE

“In this literary thriller, a Princess Diana impersonator and her estranged sister get wrapped up in a series of murders at a dumpy Las Vegas casino. This book is about many things, including cryptocurrency, organized crime and family secrets. Greta calls Chris Bohjalian’s books ‘juicy but literary at the same time. They’re so smart but feel like candy.’”

 Greta Johnson and Liberty Hardy
WBEZ Chicago

“A wonderful book. . .I absolutely could not put it down.”

 Anne Lamott
Author of Bird by Bird

“The Princess of Las Vegas offers up the perfect balance of sophisticated characterization and wild, rollicking plot.”

 Crime Reads

“Bohjalian’s lightning-speed page-turner delivers a dishy, twisty tale of suspense tempered with intriguing insights into the nature of ego, fame and family . . . Bohjalian offers a full deck of irresistible elements in this novel of endangered Vegas royalty.”

 Carol Haggas
Booklist

“Entertaining… The untimely deaths keep coming… Bohjalian is very good at capturing both the dark underside of Las Vegas and the weird surface on which fake Arethas, Sinatras, and Michael Jacksons cavort. Diana goes Vegas… in Bohjalian’s latest lively romp”

Kirkus

“A “well-calibrated satire of cryptocurrency culture. . .[and] a blazing, Tarantino-esque climax.”
