|Summary, etc.:|| Letty Dobesh, a gorgeous, degenerate thief, is fresh out of the clink and back to her old tricks, in this case, burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel in Asheville, North Carolina. But when she's surprised by returning guests on her last room of the day, she's forced to hide in the closet to avoid getting caught, and inadvertently overhears a hitman being contracted to murder the wife of a wealthy lawyer. Letty is hardly a heroine, but this puts even her threadbare morality to the test. Only in hindsight will she see her choice to intervene for what it is ... a dramatic fork in the trajectory of her life, propelling her toward a terrifying shocker of an ending that neither she (or you) ever saw coming.
