FFor some people, personal fulfillment is a blinding obsession that burns hotter than almost any fire. The goal is internal peace—euphoria. But the road taken towards satisfaction often leads to a darker place—one illuminated only by red hot reminders of man's ill-will and an appointment with THE MEN DOWNSTAIRS.

THE MEN DOWNSTAIRS is a daring, fast-paced suspense novel set in New York City—a city gripped by fear at the hand of El Diablo, a brutal serial killer with a rapidly escalating body count.

Wearing the mask of unparalleled success and fame by day, he carves his signature like a work of art into the faces of his victims by night. The detectives cannot connect the dots scattered before them. The pieces of the puzzle just don't seem to fit. All the while, El Diablo continues his reign of terror and cannot control himself.

The only one who can stop him is Andie Montgomery, an American expatriate living in Florence, Italy. When Andie stumbles across a newspaper article detailing El Diablo's horrible spree she knows she must return to the States. But returning, and getting an unlikely second chance at reclaiming her life, means facing the terrifying past she fled from fourteen years earlier.
