The Big Empty

A Thriller mystery

by Ritch Gaiti

Book Image Not Available
Overview
A gritty lawyer uncovers an ancient conspiracy and the betrayal of a man and a nation. A thriller mystery of treachery, trust and redemption. . . . Every instinct I had told me to get out but I couldn’t, not now. This simple case would trigger repercussions that would unnerve the city, maybe the country. I was about to open doors that had been nailed shut for a lifetime. And the only path to the truth was through a labyrinth of deceit. I trusted no one, not even myself. My stomach tightened. The ten years had slipped by like a century. I never thought I’d see New York again and now I find myself buried in its bowels, unsure of what I was after—but I knew I had to find it. I snaked through the city bureaucracy, historical landmarks and some of the most prominent properties in the city, all intricately linked. Nothing fit, yet everything connected and answers only bred more questions. Somehow it had all been mysteriously tied back to me. I ventured into the darkest tunnel of all, my own. I realized then why I was chosen—why I had been the only one that could find this elusive document. Deep within a maze of deceptions and betrayals, I uncovered a massive conspiracy among the most esteemed organizations in the world—and the truth that had sent my life into a tailspin ten years ago was far from true. Suddenly, this seemingly routine assignment suddenly had enormous stakes and consequences. Now it was up to me to mend an ancient injustice and the fate of an entire culture.

Every instinct I had told me to get out but I couldn’t. I snaked through the city bureaucracy, historical landmarks and some of the most prominent properties in New York, all intricately linked. Nothing fit, yet everything connected and answers only bred more questions. And somehow it had all been mysteriously tied back to me. The ten years had slipped by like a century. This was just what I needed—a simple case with a big payday. But it didn’t stay simple for long and what I uncovered would unnerve the city, maybe the world.
