Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets...and secrets hide in every shadow.

New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin, is no place for a properly raised young lady. But when her mother goes missing, Enne Salta must leave her finishing school--and her reputation--behind to follow her mother's trail in the city where no one survives uncorrupted.

Frightened and alone, Enne's only clue leads her to Levi Glaiyser--a street lord and a con man in desperate need of the compensation Enne offers. Their search sends this unlikely duo through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets, and into the clutches of a ruthless Mafia donna. But as Levi's enemies close in on them, a deadly secret from Enne's past comes to light and she must surrender herself to the City of Sin -- to a vicious game of execution...

Where the players never win.
