Where does a Los Angeles literary agent go for some rest and relaxation? Feeling lucky, Charlie Greene gambles on Las Vegas, never anticipating the stakes will be murder.
Make that seven murders. In seven days. It begins with the hit-and-run death of a pilot on the Vegas strip, which Charlie has the bad luck to witness. Then the cop she tells her story to has a fatal "accident." Two down and Charlie's ready to fold. Toss in a hot new client with an avid interest in the government's top-secret "Area 51," a casino robbery and $200,000 in missing cash--and it all adds up to more trouble than she can handle.
She just hopes her bad luck holds out long enough to get back home alive.
