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.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:
As she glanced around her childhood neighborhood, the old brick tenements closed in on her just as they had when she was a kid. An ominous foreboding slowed her steps. Maggie tucked the scarf around her neck. I sure hope this isn’t a wild goose chase, she thought. A shudder scampered up her spine. Maggie pulled her coat tighter. She was putting everything on the line by dredging up her past. A past she wanted to forget. Worse, she may be jeopardizing her relationship with Sam — that is, if they still had a relationship. 

Never had she seen Sam so angry with her. But then again this concerned his only child, Terri. It was only natural that his daughter held the largest piece of his heart; he was justifiably protective to a fault. 

Maggie sighed. This was on her. She truly was out of line making light of the situation when nothing emerged from those files. She should have never suggested Sam was once again interfering in his daughter’s life. There probably wasn’t a father alive that wouldn’t walk through fire to save their child. 

A light shower of sleet swirled in the gusting wind. Maggie lifted up the faux fur collar on her coat and braced against the dampness. Why in God’s name had she asked the Uber driver to drop her off three blocks from Michael’s house? She scoffed. The Company had taught her well, probably too well.
