Jack Frost is blessed with a warrior’s mentality and cursed with a conscience and fierce loyalty to friends. J.T. Ripper, Frost’s Scotch-drinking Doberman from hell, does not share his owner’s sense of right and wrong. Ripper was born in a vile mood and hates pretty much everyone and everything. The two find themselves fighting for survival in the neon canyons of Las Vegas when Frost’s best friend, a “semi-retired” Syndicate boss, asks for help. And then . . . well, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
