A lucky roll of the dice

California 1949.  Aloysius Archer is on his way to start a new job with a renowned private investigator in Bay Town.  Feeling lucky, he stops off at a casino in Reno, where he meets an aspiring actress, Liberty Callahan.  Together, they head west on a journey filled with danger and surprises – because Archer isn’t the only one with a secretive past.

A risk worth taking

Arriving in a town rife with corruption, Archer is tasked with finding out who is doing everything they can to disrupt the appointment of a top official.  Then two seemingly unconnected people are murdered at a burlesque club.  In a tight-lipped community, Archer must dig deep to reveal the connection between the victims.

All bets are off

As the final perilous showdown unfurls, Archer will need all of his skills to decipher the truth from the lies, and finally, to prove she’s a star in the making, will Liberty have her moment in the spotlight?
