Las Vegas CityLife writer and editor Matthew O'Brien delved into the black-and-gray underworld of the Las Vegas flood-control system for four years. He supplied himself with a flashlight, tape recorder and expandable baton.
Following in the footsteps of a psycho killer, O'Brien's adventures take him on a wild ride throughout subterranean Las Vegas. In Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las Vegas O'Brien fights against a raging flood, parties with naked crackheads and learns how to make meth. In many ways he prefers underground Las Vegas to above ground Las Vegas. There seems to be no pots of gold under the neon rainbow.
