spotlight is on "Lights out at the Moulin rouge" by charm Baker
April Mae March is a young African American writer who takes a weekend trip to Las Vegas. She’s collecting more research for the novel she’s writing about a sixty-two-year-old mystery. It's all about the 1955 Moulin Rouge Casino and Hotel and why it closed so abruptly; under suspicious circumstances.
April is dying to understand how Nevada’s first racially integrated casino could have had such a short lifespan. Armed with the facts that she has collected so far, she has her own thoughts about what may have happened. But every single piece of the puzzle just seems to lead to more and more questions.
She's obsessed and fascinated by the true stories of mob bosses, corrupt politicians, and sleazy business owners in 1950s Nevada. The issue of black entertainers and racial integration makes it all the more intriguing. She leaves Los Angeles on a Greyhound Bus and is determined to discover some answers. April is so excited that she refuses to give in to the warning signs that indicate she might actually be in danger. In the end, her Moulin Rouge adventure turns out to be so much more than she ever could have imagined.
