We’re not in the desert anymore …
Jake Wheeler wants out from under his Outfit debt and to reunite with Darla Redmond in Hollywood. The only way he can do it is with the help of Tim Kelly.
Tim isn’t thrilled to see Jake back in Las Vegas, and he doesn’t trust a word coming out of his mouth. But Jake’s offer of a big score that would legitimize his business dealings is too good to pass up.
They head to Alabama for the loot, and on their way back, they end up in the Louisiana bayou. Neither of them bargained for the small-town sheriff and the crooked prison warden. They’ve been sentenced to five years hard labor on a chain gang. No one knows where they are, and no one’s going to come looking.
Escape is the only thing on their minds.
Billie and Diana, sorority sisters, roommates and best friends, are polar opposites, but both of them jump at the chance to work on the set of a thriller filming outside of Vancouver. Just out of college, they can't believe their luck at scoring their dream jobs.
Their luck sours and their dreams turn into nightmares when they arrive at the isolated set. They're working with the director from hell; the cast and crew squabble and hook-uplike high school cliques; and filming begins in a few days, but the script hasn't been finalized yet.
Things just get worse when people start turning up dead ...
Secrets can kill …
Tim Kelly makes a deal with Mexican gunrunners that will bring him much-needed cash and improve his standing in Vegas’ criminal underworld. Then he gets stiffed, and the only person with an explanation isn’t talking.
Lupe Delgado is on the run from a powerful cartel and her only goal is to put distance between her and the man who wants her dead. Her escape is thwarted when she ends up in Tim’s hands.
Tim offers an exchange: information on the location of his weapons shipment for Lupe’s freedom. Lupe reluctantly agrees to help Tim, but refuses to tell him why she fled Mexico. When hitmen arrive in town, Tim and Lupe take the fight to Mexico.
Surrounded by enemies, Lupe must reveal her secret if they’re going to survive – and it’s one the cartel will kill to keep.
Deck the Halls . . .
Christmas is a time of reflection, and Tim Kelly dwells on his failures. His family is dysfunctional, and he dreads the holidays. His father supposedly turned over a new leaf, but Tim learns he asked the Outfit for a favor that will come back to bite them later.
It should be a time of joy, but Darla Redmond can't shake her anxiety. She's home for the holidays, hoping for a Christmas miracle: one last holiday with her ailing grandmother.
Christmas is a time of faith, but no one has less than Jake Wheeler. He depends only on Al, another drifter, but Al struggles with his own self-doubt until a surprise discovery inspires them to save another outcast.
It should be a time to spend with family, but Ruby Gordon has never felt more alone. When she learns her father won't be home for the holidays, her brother Rett resolves to make it a Christmas she'll never forget.
Everything changes ...
Las Vegas is a city of change. Fortunes are won and squandered; love found and lost; and alliances made and broken. Everything can change with a spin of the wheel or roll of the dice.
Bill is enchanted with Marilyn, who is everything he wants in a woman -- and dating his friend Jimmy.
Jimmy thinks Marilyn may be "the one," but, if so, why is he drawn to Darla?
Rising star Darla loves Jake, but she has to choose between a Hollywood career and a future with him. Jake is in debt to the Chicago Outfit, and if he leaves town, there's nowhere Chicago won't follow, even to Hollywood.
Ray wants to become a made man with Chicago, but he wants revenge against Frank Kelly more. Frank's daughter Diana presents an opportunity to drive a wedge into the family. The only person Diana trusts is her brother Tim, but their relationship is strained, leaving her angry ... and vulnerable.
Rett is at his wit's end when his sister Ruby takes up with Tim Kelly, a petty criminal with a chip on his shoulder and disdain for Chicago. Even Rett's mob ties won't protect Ruby when - not if - Tim crosses Chicago.
Some will win and others will lose, but no one will come away unchanged.
Las Vegas, 1966.
There are parts of Sin City the neon lights don't reach, and only the desperate and dangerous venture into the city's seedy backstreets, where gangsters rule, the floating poker games never stop, and people disappear without a trace.
Ruby Gordon is desperate. She has nowhere else to go when her brother opens his home to her. He runs an off-the-books juke joint, and she is fascinated by the most dangerous of his clientele.
Tim Kelly is dangerous. His father never achieved notoriety with the Chicago Outfit, but Tim has aspirations to strike out on his own. He has plans, and they don't include a naive newcomer.
Jake Wheeler is both. The Airman-turned-rodeo-rider is as gorgeous as he is foul-tempered, and he's Tim's not-so-friendly rival. When he notices Tim's interest in Ruby, he's determined to derail Tim's plans.
The three of them are on a collision course, but there's only one rule in Vegas: The house always wins.
