Detectives Laura Baxter and Jack Holt are members of the elite: Las Vegas Metro PD, one of the toughest and most respected law enforcement agencies in the United States. In the middle of a city with two million residents and 43 million annual visitors, they’re searching for a missing girl and the ruthless killers who snatched her. The girl: gone A teenage girl is boldly kidnapped from her school, minutes after her mother dropped her off. While a frenzied search begins, bringing together the entire police force of the city that never sleeps, for Detectives Baxter and Holt this isn’t a crime like any other; it is personal. The crime: audacious Stakes have never been higher, inside and outside the exclusive casino walls, where only the richest few dare to venture. Innocent lives are mere gambling chips, thrown on the table and lost with a nonchalant shrug in pursuit of the end game strategy: total control of the city. For the man with such unbounded ambition, no price is too high, no gamble too risky. Rien ne va plus but murder. The choice: impossible Detective Holt is faced with an inconceivable decision: sacrifice everything he holds sacred or jeopardize the life of an innocent girl. But the man holding all the cards in this game of life and death isn’t willing to negotiate; he’s only willing to kill. In Las Vegas, few things end well. Two mavericks make an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other with their lives, only not with their secret plans.
