Welsh Canadian foodie and criminologist Cait Morgan takes off on a short break to the fabulous Tsar! Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas with her significant other, retired cop Bud Anderson. But before they can start celebrating Bud's birthday in style at the casino owners' exclusive private dining room, the death of Miss Shirley - a woman with a colorful background and the acknowledged Queen of the Strip - results in a security lockdown. Cait, Bud, a corpse, and ten possible murderers are trapped in the luxurious restaurant for twelve deadly hours. The bodies pile up, the tension mounts, the list of suspects dwindles - and Cait knows she has to work out who within the group is an audacious killer because there's no telling who might be next to die.

"An intriguing premise ... Traditionalists will enjoy this mystery that plays with classic mystery conventions while also celebrating everything that makes Las Vegas so unique." - Kings River Life

"Strong story-telling and a fast paced ending." - Don Graves, Canadian Mystery Reviews blog

"Cathy Ace can be commended for sticking to a tried and tested formula of cosy crime in an exotic location, reminiscent of the Golden Age of crime fiction. The Corpse with the Platinum Hair offers a sympathetic amateur detective, a locked-room mystery, a small cast of colourful suspects, loving descriptions of food and drink, and a few red herrings thrown our way." - Marina Sofia, CrimeFictionLover blog
