Will Phoenix and Las Vegas get their long-awaited federal interstate? Bet on it.
Biker and former trucker Kenny Ratliff is a regular on the road to Vegas. He’s driven from Phoenix more than 30 times, sometimes for work but always for pleasure – if only to cruise the Strip and observe its singular wildlife.

Their first call as partners was a fatal car crash on the Carefree Highway involving two 15-year-old girls. It was 2 a.m. The first officer on scene found one of the victims dead.

Here’s the inside story that leads you down the winding road to this blistering showdown.
October 18, 2007, started off as a night worth celebrating: It was the 16th wedding anniversary of Jim and Molly Larkin, a couple who treats each other – after four children and all these years – like they’re still on their honeymoon.
