BOOK DESCRIPTION: From Emmy-nominated screenwriter Gordon Greisman, The Devil’s Daughter is a noir thriller full of the best–and worst–of New York City in the 1950s.
Most nights PI Jack Coffey can be found hanging out in smoky Greenwich Village jazz clubs with well-known mobsters, jazzmen, and hoods. So, when an uptown financier calls him in for a job, it seems like he’s headed for tonier climes. But it turns out the view from Louis Garrett’s lavish penthouse overlooks the same vice-ridden Manhattan streets, which explains why he’s so desperate to find his missing teenage daughter, Lucy.
When Jack’s search for Lucy leads him to swanky nightclubs packed with well-dressed pimps and wealthy drug dealers, he begins to wonder if Garrett is really concerned about his daughter’s welfare or if he simply fears she may reveal his own shocking secrets. After an attack outside Jack’s own apartment and Lucy‘s boyfriend is found floating face down in the East River, the story kicks into high gear.
But death threats, crooked cops, lies, or ugly truths can’t stop Jack from finishing the job–whether an angel or a devil, Lucy is still a kid in danger, and Jack will do whatever it takes to find her.
