Allison M. Dickson presents a chilling tale of entrapment and greed.
Do you have freedom?
Do you have control?
After four years of turning tricks in a mob-run New York brothel to pay off a debt, Nina is ready to go back to a quiet life in Iowa. Just one more client and the whole nightmare will be behind her, but this last trick turns into a battle for her soul. Meanwhile, the brothel’s sadistic Madam has been hiding away money in order to move up in her family’s organization, and she only wants the half million dollars the reclusive millionaire pays for the girls. But her driver Ramón has other ideas, making off with the money left behind when Nina’s last trick goes unexpectedly awry. The theft comes at a great cost to the Madam, setting off a horrific chain of events that changes them all. The hooker. The driver. The Madam. All of them on a collision course to a place where only madness holds sway.

I realized, as I sat down to write this, that I began writing STRINGS a year ago today, this day of the official announcement, and I finished the first draft a year ago on the very day it will be published. The universe seems to be in perfect alignment right now, as this was not actually intended to be my debut release. That originally belonged to my dystopian book, THE LAST SUPPER, but we decided to put that off until spring of 2014 in order to make room for this book, which is the ultimate Halloween tale and is certain to add to the chill of your autumn nights.
From the moment I began this project, the certainty that it would see the light of day never left me, but right now I feel like I need to pinch myself because I can't believe we're so close to the release. I will update this spot soon as purchase links become available. For right now, just mark your calendars for October 26th!
