The princess of Las Vegas : a novel / Chris Bohjalian.

Summary:
Crissy Dowling has created a world that suits her perfectly. She passes her days by the pool in a private cabana; she splurges on ice cream but never gains an ounce; and each evening she transforms into a princess, performing her musical cabaret inspired by the life of the late Diana Spencer. Some might find her strange or even delusional, an American speaking with a British accent, hair feathered into a style thirty years old, living and working in a casino that has become a dated trash heap. On top of that, Crissy's daily diet of Adderall and Valium leaves her more than a little tipsy, her senator boyfriend has gone back to his wife, and her entire career rests on resembling a dead woman. And yet, fans see her for the gifted chameleon she is, showering her with gifts, letters, and standing ovations night after night. But when Crissy's sister, Betsy, arrives in town with a new boyfriend and a teenage daughter, and when Richie Morley, the owner of the Buckingham Palace Casino, is ruthlessy executed in the Nevada desert, Crissy's carefully constructed kingdom comes crashing down.
