In this second volume, collecting issues #6-11 of the hit Vertigo series, it's Las Vegas circa 1935, and Skinner Sweet and our gal Pearl are about to learn the hard way that the bloodsuckers in Hollywood were nothing compared to what awaits them in Sin City. In just a few short years, young police chief Cash McCogan has watched his native city of Las Vegas go from cow-town to wild, glittering boomtown. And when the bodies of prominent businessmen start showing up drained of blood, Chief McCogan finds himself facing a threat much darker and deadlier than anything he could have imagined . . . and the only sure bet in town is that Skinner and Pearl are right in the thick of it.
Las Vegas, Nevada, 1936. Its days of glitz and glamour are still far off in the future. But with gambling, whoring, and violent crime its chief-economic activities, this rough and tumble town is already earning its "Sin City" moniker. And Cash McCogan, Vegas' tough-as-nails police chief, is out to clean it up -- even if it means taking on the filthy rich consortium that's building the astonishing Hoover Dam just miles away.
There's just one problem: The Colorado River ins't the only thing near Vegas that's been "damned".
First and deadliest of his breed, American vampire Skinner Sweet has set up shop in Sin City. It's his kind of town, a place where any thirst can be quenched for a price. But he's not the only vampire who wants to sink his teeth into Vegas. An all-out war is about to break out between some of the oldest and deadliest vamps in the world -- along with a shadowy society dedicated to taking them all down for good.
When the dust settles, who will be left alive (or undead) to stake their claim?
