City of Darkness

Robert Binder is a prominent attorney currently waiting to hear from the White House about his appointment as Assistant Secretary to the Department of Health and Human Services. His wife, Ann, is a renowned economist and, quite possibly, a future Nobel Laureate. Their teenage son, JG, is a musical prodigy.

            The Binders have built the perfect life.

Then, late one night, while Robert is on a run to get Ann some cold medicine from a nearby pharmacy, he sees a woman being forced into a van. Robert immediately stops his car to intervene in the abduction and—a split second later—the Binders’ perfectly constructed world shatters.

In our era of high-tech communications and media saturation, the wrath of one deeply troubled, irrational person can become the whole, viral story—and Robert will find out that accusation and conviction in the court of public opinion are not necessarily two separate things.

City of Darkness is a thriller that will shake you to your perfectly constructed core.
