Small-town private investigator and part-time assassin Bonnie Parker isn't expecting any trouble at the boardwalk amusement arcade in South Jersey — until she meets Kyle Ridley, a renegade drug courier on the run, who desperately requires Bonnie's special skills to keep herself alive.
Going up against a ruthless drug syndicate isn't anyone's idea of fun and games, especially when the enemy is the Dragusha clan, whose graying patriarch – Ujku, the Wolf – has a penchant for shipping his victims out of Port Newark in a freighter's cargo hold, locked in a steel container where no one can hear their screams.
What started as another day at the beach turns into Bonnie's longest and most harrowing night as she tangles with professional killers, sadistic thugs, and a deeply crazy man out of her past. It's the ultimate test of luck and skill, with the odds against her stacked impossibly high, and Bonnie wouldn't play at all if she didn't have her own skin in the game.
