Plot Overview

In Las Vegas, a man on vacation encounters the man he blames for his brother's death and crashes a poker game in his hotel room to confront him. When the man is later shot to death, Perry goes to work on clearing him. He soon learns that the poker game was a cover for the dead man to propose blackmail to his fellow 'players', an automobile manufacturer, a rock star and a Senator, and investigates all three, but his efforts are complicated by the defendant's precocious daughter, who puts herself in danger by doing her own investigating.
