Now Speaks the Devil
Some men are so blind, only Evil can make them see. Chip Adams may be nearing his forties, but the world looks the same as it did when he was a kid. An amateur magician with a loving family, he still has every toy he's ever owned. Why grow up? But clinging to childhood comes with a price and that bill comes due when two million dollars in drug money shows up in Chip's garbage can. What at first seems like an answer to Chip's prayers, turns out to be a gift from the Devil, in the guise of Thornton, legendary underworld troubleshooter, enforcer and assassin of blazing malice, reptilian cunning and piercing eye for human frailty-a villain among villains. An exhilarating blend of Alfred Hitchcock's impish wit with the steely gaze of Richard Stark and the strutting villainy of a Sergio Leone movie, Now Speaks the Devil is a comic noir suspense tale that will pull you to the edge of your seat. With the third in his series of original screenplays, Thomas Burchfield, the author of Dragon's Ark and The Uglies: A Crime Saga, conjures up another fast-paced wicked thriller.
