|| When John Michaels received a phone call from a Mount Hope City, NJ lawyer, it meant one thing: someone was in trouble. The only person John knew who lived and worked in this East Coast city, where legalized gambling is sanctioned, was long-time friend and fellow entertainer, Gary Egan. While money legally changed hands in casinos, high-value merchandise illegally changed hands in hotel rooms. And according to the sheriff, Gary was an alleged accomplice. Subpoenaed as a character witness, John decides to conduct a clandestine investigation to prove Gary's innocence. But when Gary's lawyer is murdered, the danger intensified twofold.
