Then, through an antique magic-infused player piano, he is mysteriously seduced by Athena Cruz, an extraordinary black musician from Harlem—a woman who is stunning, powerful, independent, and in mortal danger.
Tony and Athena share a common nemesis. His name is Cal Craven, a jazz club owner who will stop at nothing to destroy his challengers and feed his maniacal obsessions for respect and revenge.
The novel is proudly published by Boroughs Publishing Group.
