From the co-author of I Would Find a Girl Walking and an award-winning true-crime television reporter comes the shocking story of Debbie Flores, a Las Vegas showgirl whose dreams of a dazzling career ended in a nightmare... Vivacious Debbie Flores was a college educated Washington Redskins cheerleader when she headed for "Sin City." It was a smart move for the aspiring showgirl who'd soon be making her star-making solo debut at the legendary Luxor. But after the morning rehearsals of December 12, 2010, no one saw Debbie alive again. A cryptic text message she left for her mother led authorities to Debbie's charismatic boyfriend, Jason "Blu" Griffith. A fellow Vegas dancer, Blu was hiding a terrible secret. It involved a rental van, bags of cement, two plastic tubs, and a handsaw. When the details of the crime unfolded, everyone asked: how could a girl with such passion and promise come to an end so violent and unexpected? In time, the truth would reveal a life more tumultuous than believed--and what exactly transpired on Debbie's tragic final day would stun the nation. INCLUDES PHOTOS.
