Reunited with his estranged lover, Raoul, poet, Nicholas Duke has been invited for a celebratory weekend in Las Vegas with his friends Neville and Gladys Acosta. There are under currents stirring though, as Nick deals with Raoul’s new found love for drugs and excess while trying to control his own attraction to vice. Even Gladys and Neville have a history with illicit substances, and soon all four must find their way through Vegas riding the high of the new American dream: fast fortune and faster living, while gambling against all odds. First in a series of Nicholas Duke novels, The Distance to the End is stimulant-enhanced, literary pop fiction fans of early Burroughs or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas would enjoy.
