Former dancer Leslie Wetzon and her business partner Xenia Smith, Wall Street headhunters, attend the festive retirement dinner for Goldie Barnes, head of the respected financial firm Luwisher Brothers. But Goldie is not ready to retire. When he takes a sip of his bourbon and rises to make his farewell speech, he never gets to finish it. Is it a heart attack? Asthma? No, it's murder. Xenia Smith, to Wetzon's protests, accepts a commission from the acting CEO for Smith and Wetzon to find the murderer before the police do, which immediately puts them in danger. Wetzon's live-in boyfriend, NYPD detective Silvestri is on the case. The NYPD wants her help as Wetzon knows all the suspects, but she is worried about professional ethics. As the bodies begin to pile up, and the endemic greed and scandals on Wall Street, and she and Smith seem at odds about everything from their men to their work, Wetzon has to wonder if she's in the right profession.
