“Curiosity is lying in wait for every secret.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Las Vegas Gazette crime columnist Maggie Hall, through clever journalistic questioning or blind bumbling, follows a bribery scandal that leads to two murders and attempts on her own life. A native Las Vegan and combination of Luella Parsons, Scarlett O’Hara, and Typhoid Mary, Maggie is well suited for her profession.
When people go missing and dead bodies start to pile up, Maggie realizes she’s on the trail of the hottest story of her career. She’s also on the trail of two of the hottest men she’s ever met. Rick Steele, an investigative reporter at the Gazette, works the hard news angles of the murder case while managing to stay out of Maggie’s romantic clutches. Coop Demarco, however, one of the FBI agents assigned to the case, seems a far more willing partner.
