A secluded B&B, an exotically beautiful woman, breakfast—and bloodshed. Just the start of another typical day for famous author Barron Docksteder!

On a snowy, wintry day, Barron Docksteder’s protégé uncovers a manuscript Docksteder was working on shortly before his untimely death. Clearly at least partly autobiographical, the manuscript tells the story of a world-famous author—whose books have been turned into Hollywood blockbusters—caught in a deadly crossfire between competing Las Vegas and East Coast gambling interests.  Meanwhile, that same world-famous author is ensnared by the irresistible allure of a beautiful, mysterious, and equally deadly woman who is determined to outmaneuver them all.

The central character of the story sounds a lot like, well, Docksteder himself before he was murdered.  Could the manuscript be more proof that Barron Docksteder lived a life worth writing about?
