A thrilling, glamorous Las Vegas story from the former executive producer of Spelling Television.
Nick Conti, producer of the successful Las Vegas T V show The $trip
, is a busy man. Spending fifteen-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 mobster 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 big bosses in Chicago and Kansas City begin asking questions. Nick’s own Mafia history suddenly becomes relevant again—his boss, a Napoleonic figure who resembles a certain real-life T V executive, is holding it over his head. 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 budget of The $trip
in serious trouble and local journalists beginning to smell a story, Nick will have to rely on his guile and charm to escape with his money, his job, and his life.
