Nick Conti, producer of the successful Las Vegas TV Show The $trip, is a busy man. Spending 15-hour days on the set and long nights drinking cocktails and cavorting with the fastest women in Vegas, he is hardly looking for extra work. But, when a local gangster begins plotting to extort money from the show, Nick realizes it's going to be a long week.The small-time blackmail operation stirs up old demons, and the bigger bosses in Chicago and Kansas City begin asking questions. What's more, Nick's old flame has recently appeared on the scene, holding the arm of the mysterious Allie Saltieri, a man with mob ties of his own. With the star of The $trip in trouble and local journalists beginning to smell a story, Nick will have to rely on his guile and his charm to escape with his money, his job, and his life.
