    Default Vegas Die: A Quest Mystery... Find the Dagger, win $25,000!

    Don’t let Stephen Grogan’s promotional gimmick daunt you. Sure, he’s offering a $25,000 silver dagger to any reader who deciphers clues throughout his debut novel, Vegas Die. But Grogan’s book is more than a treasure hunt. It’s a down-and-dirty crime thriller centering on a mafia defense attorney turned Sin City mayor. When Mayor Goodfella discovers a corpse in his car, he becomes a suspect in a series of hits on old mobsters. With subplots involving card counters, strippers and Elvis impersonators, Vegas Die embraces the myths of the Strip to fashion the darkest, most hair-raising tale ever set in our city. If you want to stay up all night reading a rock-solid crime novel, Vegas Die will peel back your eyelids. Buy a signed copy from Grogan, who appears today at the Borders on Decatur and Sahara avenues. Jarret Keene, Las Vegas City Life

    Why is the ability to create new threads in this forum not restricted?

    My reservation has been made. I have a mini suite so there's room to sit around and chat if needed.

    Was reminiscing about the last reunion. Below are the links. Hopefully it will inspire some of you to join this years reunion.

    I think there must have been about 35 people there which included Twelevers and their families. It was a great time.

    Default End Game

    I received an email the other day from john@jpkdesigns.com who apparently is the Forum administrator on the Quest Mystery website. Looks like this one is coming to an end, whether someone has found the dagger or not in December...

    "Addison & Highsmith Publishers

    Literary Treasure Hunt Ending

    The $25,000 dagger is still hidden…but only for 30 more days.

    The best selling mystery, Vegas Die, by author Stephen Grogan, has hidden
    clues within its pages that would lead treasure hunters (known as
    “Questors”) to a dagger redeemed by the publisher for $25,000 cash.

    The hunt in progress for the last two years now ends on December 14th.
    Hundreds of Questors have sent in thousands of guesses on the dagger’s
    location. Has anyone been close?

    “Yes, there have been some near guesses,” says Author Grogan, the only one
    who knows the location of the dagger. “But these Questors took a last
    minute wrong turn and missed the discovery.”

    Grogan says he is amazed at the intelligence of the Questors who have
    dissected the book looking for clues. “Among mystery fan readers, there
    have been scientists, cryptologists and computer geeks tearing apart every
    word and nuance to gain the right path.”

    “My goal was to write a mystery seamless, that is a reader saw nothing out
    of the ordinary except a good story. But then could re-read Vegas Die and
    realize there were findable clues.”

    There is an active website forum, Welcome to QuestMystery.com ♣♦♥♠ Home, where Questors exchange
    ideas and analyze the story, always aware of the Quest Mystery™ mantra:
    “Nothing Is As It Seems”. If the dagger is not discovered at the close of
    the contest, Grogan intends to post the solution on the website, and the
    publisher will add the explanation to any subsequent issues of Vegas Die.

    Grogan has taken his treasure hunting motif into another mystery novel,
    recently published. Captain Cooked offers a Hawaiian war club hidden
    somewhere on the Big Island of Hawaii, and the clues require you to use GPS
    and tour the island searching for the prize.

    For a $25,000 treasure, the countdown begins. Vegas Die is available
    through all major bookstores and in most e-book formats.
