Journalist Alexandra Bailey never believed she'd become another tragic statistic ripe for the front pages. Abducted off the street. Beaten bloody. Left for dead in the unforgiving winter. The article wrote itself. And her crime? Not even she knew, but that didn't stop the nightmarish jaws from snapping closed around her. In one gruesome attack, Alex's life very nearly ground to an end had she not found herself at the mercy of a secretive Samaritan linked to a vast world below the streets of New York. Now, Alex's survival comes at the cost of her entanglement in a mystery thirty-two years in the making. Working alongside an ex-cop turned Private Investigator, she fights to not only unravel the identity of her beastly savior but the Underground's connection to one of the East Coast's most infamous and sinister mob families.
