Hit woman and thief Reed Gable works for the highest bidder, no matter where the job takes her. An orphan of circumstance, Reed knows the streets of Las Vegas better than anyone. Growing up rough has gotten her to the top of her profession, and she plans to stay there.

Accountant Brinley Myers, a recent hire at the Moroccan Casino, discovers a money laundering operation orchestrated by the New York mob and suddenly her life, and those in it, become collateral damage.

Reed has Brinley in her sights and is ready to close the contract when she sees Brinley's son in the car with her. Even hard-hearted Reed can't kill a mother in front of her child. Before Reed can come up with a plan to finish the job, she's double crossed. It'll take all her street-smarts to keep both her, and her surprisingly beautiful mark, alive.
