Part-time wrestler, nighttime security guard, and all-the-time big, ugly, bad-tempered, and proud of it, Eva Wylie knows how to stand out in a crowd. She should. In the ring, she's the London Lassassin, with a reputation as one of the meanest, toughest villains in the business. She's permanently banned from the ring, broke, and out of shape, but Eva, the London Lassassin, figures it will take a lot worse than that to floor her. That's before she finds a sports bag stuffed with bank notes in one of her serially "borrowed" cars. Soon Eva has big dreams of staging a wrestling comeback. Then her newfound loot brings her a tougher audience than any she's ever faced down. It isn't long before Eva's confronting dangerously inept thugs with the nerve to shadow her all over London. Or having to show some muscle when one or two mistake her for a lightweight. Or daring to trace the money to its chilling, deadly source. Being down-and-out only makes Eva meaner than ever. And it will take more than a bunch of crooks, nosy police - and even Anna Lee, formidable private investigator - to keep Eva from fighting for the big wide world of opportunities she's glimpsed beyond the mat.
