When Jim Snow gets a panicked call from his sister, Karen, he knows something is terribly wrong. After all, he hasn’t seen Karen in two years, despite the fact that the siblings live a mere three miles apart. But now Karen’s estranged husband has been murdered, and she is the number-one suspect. After all, she stood to collect on her husband’s life insurance, just as she did for her last two husbands when they died. Luckily, she has a brother who is a Las Vegas homicide detective.… At least, he was before he quit the force to become a full-time poker player. But seeing as he has been on a losing streak for the last six months, now might be a good time for a little diversion.
Snow joins forces with feisty cocktail waitress-turned-cop Alice James, and together they set out to find the truth - even if it threatens to hit too close to home.
