Meet Chris Bohjalian, bestselling author of two dozen books, in conversation with Anna Katsavos as they discuss Bohjalian's latest fiction, The Princess of Las Vegas (2024). The mystery weaves a twisted tale of organized crime, cryptocurrency, and family secrets surrounding Crissy Dowling, a Princess Diana impersonator, and her estranged sister and near look-alike Betsy. Crissy channels the princess as a means of escape from her messy life. Shortly after Betsy moves to Las Vegas with her boyfriend and newly adopted 13-year old daughter in tow, two owners of the casino where Crissy performs are found dead within days of each other. As the page-turner of a plot unfolds, the sisters are caught in the middle of a dangerous game of money and murder. Time will be reserved for audience Q&A.
