San Francisco stuntwoman Darcy Lott is an expert at creating the illusion of danger, living in a tightly controlled universe in which all but the most disastrous mistakes can be reset and reshot.

She claims to be getting a divorce, but why would she hire Gary, who never handles divorce cases? And why does he insist on hiding the case from their older brother, John, a police officer?
