Mickey Munca is a freelance journalist trying to make a living in Denver, in the shadow of the Rockies. He is also the son of Conservative Polish Jews and one hell of a nice guy.
But he makes a big mistake, falling for a rough-and-tumble-woman who hates Jews and blacks. Though alluring, she busts beer bottles over heads, knows how to handle a semiautomatic and, in general, has a real chip on her shoulder.
Unfortunately for Mickey, she's attracted to him, too. By the time he discovers who she is, what she's really all about, his life will be in grave danger.
