A Deperate Man

The Bronx can be a tough place. And Luis Ramos can tell you it’s even tougher to raise a daughter there. How can he keep her safe when every street leads to a new threat, an unseen danger?

Now his daughter, Jasmine, is missing, and Luis will stop at nothing to get her back. He’s a desperate man, willing to do whatever it takes to find her in the endless maze of the city. Nothing—and no one—will stand in his way.

Whoever took Jasmine is about to find out just how tough the Bronx can get.

"...tough, fast-paced, gripping, and hard-boiled to the bone..."
- Jason Starr

"...a dark, wondrous jewel of a book." - Ken Bruen

"...a tough, brutal and disturbing story. This is fiction that hurts." - Manuel Ramos

The author if CONCRETE MAZE, Steven Torres, is also the author of the PRECINCT PUERTO RICO series (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Minotaur), featuring Luis Gonzalo, the sheriff of Angustias, a fictionalized small town nestled in the mountainous heart of Puerto Rico.

Steven was born in the Bronx in 1969. Steven's parents moved to the United States from Puerto Rico in the 1950's. In 1980, Steven and his family briefly moved to the outskirts of a small town in western Puerto Rico called Moca. Moca was part of the inspiration for the fictionalized town of Angustias.
