For twenty-years Sam Steele lived with a lie gnawing at his conscience — for twenty-years his only child believed her mother was dead. Without warning his ex-wife springs from the ashes of the past and reaches out to him in his capacity as a veteran Immigration Custom Enforcement agent.

When Sam’s ex dumps a father’s living nightmare into his lap, he must choose between doing his duty as a law enforcer and jeopardizing his cherished relationship with his daughter. Circumstances beyond his control leave him no choice. Before he can seek forgiveness, TERRI ANNE disappears. Sam neglects his duties as an ICE agent and becomes obsessed in finding her. In the wake of his search he unravels a trail of murder, illegal Green Card marriages, and unveils a jihadist’s plot to launch a terror attack on American soil.

INTO THE DEVIL’S DEN – SNARED BY THEIR OWN LIES weaves a tangled tale of suspense, murder, and treachery. Each twisted circumstance is triggered by that one well-intended lie Sam Steele told his child — a lie that mushrooms into several more falsehoods and leaves multiple lives dangling by a single thread. The daunting task of facing the truth and the race against time pushes ICE agent Sam Steele’s integrity to the limit.

RODNEY squeezed the telephone receiver with one hand and with the other dabbed the puddle of sweat in the folds of his neck. “Ah, come on, Gino, just a few more weeks. Ya know that kinda money doesn’t grow on trees.” He massaged his pounding temple. “All right, all right, you’ll get your dough by Wednesday.” Rodney slammed the phone into the cradle. “Bloodsucking bastard,” he murmured under his breath. He waddled to the dinette table, collapsed onto a chair.

His hand shook as he tipped the bottle and watched bourbon flow into the coffee cup. Damn unpredictable college teams. Next year he’d only bet professional. With one gulp, he downed the liquid fire, and then filled the cup again. It wasn’t his fault he was having a run of bad luck lately. Hadn’t he always paid his gambling debts? Where does Gino get off making cracks about his will being up to date? That just wasn’t funny.

Rodney grabbed the last miniature-powdered donut from the package and popped it into his mouth. When Sylvia finally paid him that SOB Gino was gonna wipe out the major chunk of his nest egg.

Rodney’s hand shook as he picked up his coffee cup. Thank the blessed Saints he had collected plenty of dope on Rashid and that cousin of his. A steady income was assured as long as that “Pretty Boy” kept chasin’ pussy. Rodney’s heart skipped a beat, unless Sylvia shot the bastard and the girl. If that happened, unfortunately the rules changed all together. Nah, that squirrely bitch wouldn’t have the nerve to pull the trigger. Not even Sylvia would be heartless enough to shoot her own kid.
