A terrifying and visceral suspense thriller that thrusts a war veteran into the brutal New York City crime underworld. Bill Conlin returns home to New York City after a dangerous military tour in Afghanistan. Like many veterans haunted by war he has fallen on hard times and is looking for work. Lonely, depressed and out of money he finally meets a beautiful woman and falls in love, but an unforgettable job interview forces him into a life of crime that keeps them apart and endangers their lives. When she is suddenly kidnapped Bill must negotiate with coldhearted killers to buy back her freedom. Will money be enough or will they pay with their lives? In the tradition of action-packed noir thrillers, comes a crime fiction story about an otherwise good guy "bent" bad when he's pulled into the underbelly of the New York City crime scene.Drugs, human trafficking and murder...

All Bill really wants is a normal life with a nice girl, and he's pretty sure the waitress he just met, Dana, is the one. But with his savings running low, and desperate to get out of his Hell's Kitchen near-tenement apartment building, Bill, against his better judgment, agrees to a meeting with Mr. Sullivan--and immediately hits the point of no return... Now with a brand new Lincoln and fancy new uptown digs (complete with a live-in girl whose only purpose is to serve him, and a wardrobe packed with weapons), Bill's tasked to take down a Harlem-based Mexican prostitution ring.One thing leads to another, however, and the deeper he gets, the more he learns, and the more tangled up he becomes in a lifestyle he never wanted.
