Taking Down New York’s Rich and Powerful

First, there’s a daring, daylight robbery of a top Wall Street Investment Firm.

Next, several prominent New York City judges start showing up dead,in the middle of the night, still curiously dressed in judicial robes. Their bodies, despite heavy area security, have mysteriously and meticulously been placed at the city’s ten most famous locations, including: the Statue Of Liberty, Times Square, the Empire State Building, even Yankee Stadium.

Then, an intense 48 hours later, Lt. Michael Maggio, a 19 year veteran detective of the NYPD, literally chases after and confronts his main suspect, a man known only as, “Mr. Silver”.

To the Lieutenant’s surprise, Silver hypothetically admits that, ”yes”, he’s responsible for both the Wall Street robbery, and the dead judges. He then reveals a startling, multi-faceted connection between the two cases, and more importantly, why the crimes were committed.

In fact, Silver’s reasons are so compelling, and the information he provides so illuminating, that Lt. Maggio, coming from the “purest” sense of justice, decides to let Silver go free.

Now, however, the steely detective must unravel a far greater mystery in order to hopefully stop a truly evil, sinister plot. One where 1000’s of innocent New Yorkers could become additional victims to the overwhelming influence, and corrupt reach, of New York’s “Rich and Powerful”.

Cupid versus a Conman in a very sexy, quirky mystery!

A ruggedly handsome, blind date, known as “Lucky” shows up
at 27 year old, Diane Manning’s Greenwich Village apartment.
Diane, or “Di” for short, is a sweetheart of a person, and has
always believed in “love at first sight”.

Diane is instantly attracted to Lucky, although he is not at all
who he pretends to be. So, Di continually catches him in one
falsehood after another. However, he has a gifted conman’s
supreme ability to explain everything away by using lie after lie,
each one more outrageous than the one before.

While he is simply there to con her, he begins to feel something
that he’s never felt for one of his “marks”. Could it be, that for the
first time in his life, he’s actually falling in love?

He desperately tries to complete his con, but he feels overwhelmed by her constant, open-hearted expressions of affection.

She literally pulls out every amorous move from her own bag of tricks, as she delights and tantalizes Lucky with a cheer-leading strip tease, and a sexy, fun-loving game of hide and seek.

By the evening’s end, both “conman” and “sweetheart” have each been conned. But, neither one would ever change a thing because they are both, madly, hopelessly, and for all time,“head over heels” in love.
