Nebraska left the private-eye business for a reason, but apparently his ex-partner was never convinced. Why else would Morris Copel literally collapse through Nebraska's screen door at 4 a.m. on a sweltering Omaha night, soaking wet and sporting a gunshot wound that won't let him live for long? But before Copel can die on Nebraska's rug, he has one final gift for the ex-detective. A grimy envelope containing 4 strips of negatives featuring a girl wearing nothing but high heels. The catch? The girl is the daughter of a senator up for re-election. And she's not smiling. So Nebraska, never as hard-boiled as he'd hoped, gets back into the business. Despite the police's warnings. Despite the girl's lies. And despite the fact that he can practically smell the danger awaiting him around each and every bend.
