Virginia Hill lived the high life in Hollywood in the 1950's. She played host to endless nights of elegant parties where movie stars, businessmen and politicians came to call. Little did they know that nothing in the house belonged to Virginia - it belonged to the mob. As their party host and good-time girl, Virginia Hill had been sent to California to look after the mob's business interests. And there was no business of more interest to them than Bugsy Siegel's plan to open a gambling resort in the middle of the Las Vegas desert. There was a lot of money invested in Bugsy - but Virginia had a more personal investment. Their love affair and the deep financial hole that was being dug in Vegas was about to upset some very important people. A price would have to be paid - and the price was on Bugsy Siegel's head.
