Nikki Tate's father has been on death row for killing his best friend in a gambling dispute, but he has always maintained his innocence, and now his conviction has been overturned and he is back at the casino, where high school junior Nikki has been operating illegal poker games in the hopes of saving enough money to get out of Vegas after graduation--and now he is determined to find the real killer, and Nikki is inevitably drawn into his dangerous search for the truth.

When her father is cleared of murder charges and released from death row, Nikki, who has been saving money to get out of Vegas by playing illegal poker games, joins her father's obsessive search to find the person who framed him.
