Summary

Summary

Pistol-packing poker queen Jill O'Rourke is an Annie Oakley at nailing targets or cards. She needs to be sharp at both, since she secretly supports her desert-rat grandfather and his cronies on her poker winnings -- a dangerous profession for a young, pint-sized woman in Las Vegas. Stardusted balladeer Johnny Diamond finds himself a prisoner of fame when a stalker threatens him. Love and death are in the cards, but the jet-black feline house detective known as Midnight Louie sees all, knows all, and gets his paws into the action.
