The author of The Mouse that Roared and Whatever It Takes returns with yet another edge-of-your-seat thriller. Chaos ignites and hell's fury is unleashed in this battle of good versus evil . . . Besides sharing the problems of living in a deteriorating building, the thirteen tenants at 666 Cypress Avenue all have a very deep and bitter hatred towards one another. As temperatures rise in their South Bronx neighborhood, so does their frustration with the building's broken doors, malfunctioning elevator, rat infestation, and skyrocketing rent increases. To make matters worse, the blazing heat is also sending everyone's animosity to its boiling point. Then a new tenant arrives, taking up shelter in the last vacant apartment. Highly intelligent and extraordinarily beautiful, Raven Thorn blows in like a much-needed summer breeze. Unleashing her charisma, she slowly gains the trust and admiration of all the tenants except one. Crystal Bright, a crack-addicted young woman, looks like the poster child for everything that's wrong with society; but beneath her addiction lies a heart of gold and a very intelligent mind. Sensing a darker and much more sinister side to Raven, Crystal realizes that she must act fast before a fuse is lit that could ignite a bloodbath between the fragile building's hostile tenants. Dwayne Murray Sr. resides in New York City, where he was born and raised. An electrician by trade, the author walks a fine line on the job and gets a thrill bringing that same sense of heart-pounding danger to his action-packed novels.
