Billions of dollars in potential casino profits can turn the nicest people ugly. Even in an upscale beach city like Santa Monica A gaming goliath is steamrolling local opposition and build a glitzy high-rise casino on the shoreline. A real whodunit confronts Santa Monica Police Department homicide detective Dave Mason when a crucial city councilwoman is murdered on the eve of the vote bringing the casino one step closer. The dance between politics, money, and big ideas that change the landscape draw Mason in, taking his attention away from his daughters bullying, and his impending divorce. He struggles against his attraction toward the witness, the community organizer leader of the oppposition campaign. She must prove her innocence in a murder she didnt commit. She must also live with the knowledge that the real killer--probably someone she knows--is hunting her. Mason struggles to keep his mind on this baffling case with way too many suspects with no alibis, while his own life unravels, and the activist hes trying to protect keeps interfering, embarrassing him by turning up legitimate leads of her own. The focus of the investigation lands on the money people: real estate developers, PR flacks, the hotels, the politicians and their dark shenanigans. An explosive secret boils up from Santa Monicas seamy past that the casino interests cannot suppress.
