Twenty-six year-old Jessie Scout had endured a life steeped in pain. She feared no one. Her heart had travelled to regions few could conjure in dreams. It was reflected in her photo ID card clipped to her chest. Her pretty face was a mystery. A glint of arrogance in her eyes that squinted slightly to offer a smile; a manifestation of righteous contempt for every injustice that had befallen her. It held a vengeful calm. Because she had purchased secrets. Paid in full with her tears. Her blood. She had come to Las Vegas, a city of risk, not to gamble. But to collect.
