At six feet tall (in her five-inch stilettos, of course) Sierra's a pro of a dancer, but she's also quite expert at getting herself in big-time trouble. Luckily, she's got her own personal knight in shining armor in the form of Panama City Homicide Detective John Nailor.. "Or so she thinks - until now. Sierra and her protege, Ruby Lee Diamond, are on a break from an appearance at the Dead Lakes Motor Speedway when Ruby disappears. Sierra discovers Ruby dead, sees Nailor standing over the body, then watches helplessly while he disappears when Sierra begins to scream for help. Then, worse, Nailor denies being there at all, creating more trouble for her with the cops.. "Sierra is hopping mad and more than confused, but she can't let a typical male get in the way of duty. Someone killed a member of her "family," and she's determined to find out what happened to the young, innocent Ruby.
