Brett Allen was born into a family of private detectives, and at an early age he found himself coerced into performing devious tasks for his elders and participating in their clandestine activities. As an adult he eventually opens a private investigation company and continues his ancestral legacy.
Bound to his responsibilities as a family man living in suburbia, Allen ignores his ethical misgivings and accepts a lucrative undercover assignment from the owners of a world-famous strip club, unwittingly immersing himself in a dangerous counterculture.
Hired to find who is stealing money from the club, Allen quickly moves into his role, filling the shoes of the doorman murdered two weeks earlier. But it is not long before he realizes this is no run-of- the-mill undercover job. Week after week, Allen finds himself in increasingly perilous situations, but the lure of big money keeps him in the game-until everything falls apart and Allen uncovers the club's history and the nefarious forces in control. Suddenly, Allen's job has become much more than just exposing thieves to his clients.
In this novel based on true events, a private detective faces the decision of his life as he is forced to contemplate how much his life is worth.
