Mob Boss Humphrey DiEbola has tracked femme fatale Helen Sedlacek to Montana, where she fled after killing Humphrey’s predecessor and running off with millions in Mafia cash. Unexpectedly, rather than vengeance, he offers her redemption. Humphrey has also set about drastically downsizing his operation, even turning over an illegal cigar factory to Helen to make some legitimate, Cuban-quality cigars. Is he grooming her to become La Donna of Detroit? When a quiet poker party in Humphrey’s leaves all hands dead, Mulheisen smells a rat—and he’s not the only one.
