"You never have to worry your pretty little head, Cash, your father will handle everything."
At least, that's what Cashlin's mom always told her.
The name Alighieri was as good as gold in the city. Everyone knew her father, he was a well-respected, benevolent man who could protect her from any shadows that lingered too close to her family. And he did... until he couldn't. Not even money and good connections could save him
from a stray bullet to the brain.
No one shielded Cashlin from the truth once he was gone. She had been raised by a drug dealer who worked his way up to the second-in-command of Avarice, a crime syndicate that kept the city's underbelly in check. Her only saving grace was that her uncle stepped in to watch over her and her mother, and he taught her how their world worked.
Existing in their world has a price, and Cashlin is willing to risk it all to take everything for herself.
