Everybody wonders how to break into the business– show business, the art world, voice acting. But just how do you get your start at being a contract killer?
Writer Finlay Donovan can tell you. It starts with a misunderstood conversation with her agent and a bloody knife in her diaper bag, and the next thing you know, she’s got a contract. For $50,000. That’s quite a lot of money. Especially for someone who is behind on the rent, the electric bill, the credit card bill, and drives a van that’s on its last legs. Throw in the fact that you need to pay a good lawyer to win a custody battle with your ex-husband, and any gal might have 50,000 reasons to do the job.
Finlay’s curiosity gets the better of her as she does research on the intended victim. Following him to an upscale bar, she finds the mark is the type that puts roofies in women’s drinks and worse. Slipping him the mickey instead, Finlay drives off with the mark in her van.
But she doesn’t intend to kill the creep until she accidentally does. In a panic, she teams up with her babysitter to bury the body and split the loot 60-40. How out of control can a situation get?
Pretty out of control. Before she knows it, Finlay has another contract she doesn’t want, a secret identity she created out of spite, and a police detective, angling for a personal relationship, who is sure the mark she offed is murdered and not missing.
Will Finlay find a way to keep her kids, her career, and her sanity, or will this multi-stranded farce completely unravel leaving Finlay wearing an orange jumpsuit and a shiny pair of cuffs?
