Las Vegas in the 1960s…corrupt politicians, mobsters, and crooked cops competed for turf and power, and Christina Patterson, Sin City’s top madam, knew how to play the game. Beautiful, yet smart and savvy, admired by clients and associates alike— she held the secrets of the most influential people in Vegas. On Christmas Eve 2002, Detective Steve Garneau is called to an exclusive Las Vegas neighborhood. A 67-year-old woman is sprawled on her living room floor, shot to death. Garneau surveys the scene — no indication of robbery or sexual assault, no break-in. With the lack of clues, Garneau suspects a professional killer, but there is no question about the victim’s identity— Christina Patterson. Unable to spot a present-day motive for the murder, Garneau must research Patterson’s working days. He finds that in some cases there was little difference between those who broke the law and the badge-carriers charged with enforcing it.
