The Devil In New York

Stephen M. O'Brien

Struggling to provide for his ailing daughter following his wife's tragic demise, Daniel finds himself trapped in a relentless financial quagmire. With his credit in shambles and loans to support an unattainable luxury, his daughter's life-saving surgery hangs precariously in the balance. It's in this dire moment that Victor, a lifelong friend, proposes a robbery as their last, desperate lifeline. With his daughter safely entrusted to her aunt's care in anticipation of her surgery, Daniel, against his better judgment, acquiesces.

But what begins as a desperate gamble transforms into a nightmare. It seems Daniel wasn't the only one to break into 28 Sherman Circle that night. Now there are four dead bodies in the house and Daniel's fingerprints are at the scene of the crime.

Arrested and facing insurmountable odds, Daniel's salvation arrives in the form of Ari Rimmer, a prominent lawyer. Yet the offer of freedom carries an ominous undertone. An unsettling feeling nags at him, casting a shadow over Ari's benevolence. As Daniel races against relentless pursuers hell-bent on his demise, he uncovers a web of deception and corruption.
