THE LAST STORY: The Murder of an Investigative Journalist in Las Vegas is an exclusive deep dive into a chilling true tale of sex, ambition, retribution, and homicide.
Jeff German, a veteran Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter, was no stranger to controversy or the danger of his work.
For over four decades, he relentlessly confronted the mob, corrupt politicians, and greedy bureaucrats, facing frequent threats. Often enough that he and his friend and fellow investigative reporter, Arthur Kane, sometimes joked about reporting on these threats if they were ever acted upon.
Then, in the spring of 2022, German received a tip about abuses at a little-known county office. His subsequent investigation unearthed a scandalous, sexually incriminating video of rising politician Robert Telles. The resulting stories in the Review-Journal ended the man’s political aspirations.
Less than six months later, on September 3, German’s lifeless body was discovered outside his home with multiple stab wounds. His dedicated newsroom colleagues, led by author Arthur Kane, vowed to find the killer. In doing so, they exposed the true depths of corruption and malice in Sin City.
Meanwhile, the police struggled to identify a suspect until they released a photo of the suspect's vehicle to the media. That tip led them to none other than Robert Telles, who was subsequently arrested and now faces life in prison, pending the outcome of his trial in March 2024.
In THE LAST STORY, Kane delivers an intense narrative of courage, betrayal, and the unrelenting quest for justice … German’s … and for those who vowed to hold his killer accountable.
