Las Vegas detectives Rita Cates and J.D. Prejon must investigate the brutal murder of a striptease dancer. The victim had been one of Sam McKeon's girlfriends for a while. Sam, a former cop and a former boyfriend of detective Cates, hasn't any alibi for the night of the crime. When Sam's psychiatrist and mistress is also murdered in the same manner, the police hesitates between two theories: either Sam is a psychopath or there is someone out there in Vegas who wants Sam to be arrested and convicted for some mysterious reasons. A subplot describes Rita Cates and Sam McKeon's rekindled love.
