It is a bloody exciting holiday season in Cripple Creek, Colorado. The ritualistic murder of a casino worker in a deserted parking lot on New Year’s Eve awakens blackjack dealer Rhi Brennan’s lost memories. She has lived and died in a past era of “the greatest gold rush camp in history”. And a combination of high altitude and hard liquor won’t erase the notion that in her last life, she didn’t die well.
Many old timers and the local chapter president of the Alien Abductees Club claim the devil has come back to town after a hundred year absence. After all, the door to Hell is just down the road.
Rhi, unfortunately, has dreamed the exact location of the key to that door. Now, everyone from immortal crusader knights, demons and vampiric gold rush madams to sleazy pit bosses want a piece of her. In some cases, literally.
Beyond the faux gas streetlights and neon, Rhi must figure out her past to save humankind, who she doesn’t think much of these days. With the aid of a cowboy, a smart-mouthed ex-marine/single mom and a survivalist who is a VIP customer at “M-16s R-US,” Rhi sets herself and her slobbering, mystical bloodhound, Ellie Mae, against an ancient evil who would unleash the occupants of the Great Pit on the world.
Well you've got the clever description part down, but now you need a hook. This isn't it, for all the usual reasons.
Start with this
X is the main guy;
Y is the bad guy;
they meet at Z and all L breaks loose.
If they don't solve Q, then R starts and if they do it's Lsquared.
then elaborate and make it your own.
