Description
An unlikely couple from opposing areas of society checks into an upscale hotel and shares twelve hours of passion, con games, and violence that culminate in bliss--and murder.
They have twelve hours to relish the night of their lives. On a cold and rainy night during the Christmas season, a woman who has suffered a great personal loss and a successful businessman from Orange County meet by chance at a gas station on the edges of Hawaiian Gardens. She is living hand-to-mouth, about to be evicted from her apartment in Leimert Park, out of viable options, and she needs quick money to be able to survive through the end of the year. He's prosperous, impeccably dressed, and dealing with personal demons, the kind that money cannot erase. They are an unlikely couple and have nothing in common, but as they engage in conversation and move from con games to assaults to robberies, they end up in an upscale hotel room where they continue to confide in each other as they try to come to grips with their problems and their seasonal loneliness. By sunrise, once they are on the other side of erotic interludes, jealousy, and violence their worlds will have changed. One will have changed for the better. One will have changed for the worse. For one night, their passion is boundless, but with every tick of the clock, their separate pasts close in. They push the limits of time, devotion, and even the law as they attempt to catch a glimpse of the future. They need each other for a lifetime but will have only one night.--Dust jacket.
