With the Director of Sensory Resources recently murdered, the powerful people behind the scenes at Homeland Security attempt to block Donovan Creed's promotion. Unfortunately from them, he's the only game in town. Meanwhile, in Las Vegas, Willow Breeland, the world's most ambitious eighteen-year-old, hatches a plan to gain control of mob boss Carmine Porello's strip club. Her plan depends on gaining the trust and support of Callie Carpenter's live-in lover, Gwen Peters, and Donovan Creed's daughter, Maybe Taylor. Against this backdrop, Donovan and his top assassin, Callie Carpenter, have fallen in love. But if things don't work out for them as a couple, they have a backup plan: the breathtakingly beautiful private detective Dani Ripper, who seems to find both killers equally fascinating.
