That's actually really strange because Des Moines is at the top of the list of % of workers in the Central Business District in relation to the Metro population - over 75,000 jobs.

Being that it's such a white collar city with lots of insurance jobs in the downtown area. How is downtown deserted???

I don't know how this got through the publishers. I mean if you write a book like this at least do the proper research, not just hack up some quick sensationalist pulp to sell at discount bookstores.

It goes to show, if you want to visit a place don't always trust what others say. I've been to places people people dissed and was pleasantly surprised and vice versa.
