Summary
"Nomi Malone has what it takes to make it as a Las Vegas showgirl-- what she doesn't have is a way in. To survive, she accepts the only job available: lap dancing at a seedy club. And when she meets Cristal, Vegas' reigning showgirl, Nomi wants everything she has-- including her boyfriend. And as Nomi dives deeper into the world she so desperately desires, a rivalry between the two women heats up. The battle for the spotlight becomes so fiercely competitive that it drives Nomi to deperate lengths-- and devious heights-- for fame in Sin City."--Container
