Through Hollow Lands
Like Brian Moore given a make-over by James Elroy. Excellent stuff.

About Through Hollow Lands
Set in the US on 11th September 2001, Through Hollow Lands tells the story of George Bailey, a charming but feckless opportunist who finds himself trapped in the purgatory that is Las Vegas. He is followed there by Lou Plutus, his boss, from whom he has stolen a video of great importance to the Russian mafia. George also runs into Jaffé Losoko, a woman he got pregnant six years before and who he believed had had an abortion. To escape Las Vegas, George must face the Russians head on and make amends to Jaffé. Beset by angels and demons, truth-tellers and liars, he must pay for the sins of his past in order to find salvation beyond Vegas.
