PLYMOUTH, MA, USA, May 22, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Screenwriter and author Michael Caissie will take readers to the dark underbelly of 1970’s Manhattan in his debut novel, “Between Heaven & 42nd and Broadway,” scheduled for release by Briley & Baxter Publications May 30. In Caissie’s suspenseful thriller, war veteran Paul Stevenson is thrust into a world of sex, crime and drugs after blood splatters from a fellow subway rider and thousands of dollars’ worth of cocaine fall to his feet.
Caissie, an accomplished screenwriter, producer and director, created the work of fiction during the pandemic, turning to a new medium that allowed for a dark and edgy tale told through a third person narration. Caissie called the creation of the novel therapeutic, as it was originally created as a screenplay and personal project before ultimately becoming his first novel.
“Between Heaven and 42nd and Broadway” takes place mostly around The Deuce in New York City in the late 70’s. Caissie spent countless hours researching this unique period of the city’s history.
“It is my hope that fans of gritty tales will gravitate to this novel, following Paul as he faces the dark shadows of organized crime and learning some interesting historical facts along the way,” said Caissie.
Now available for pre-order
“Between Heaven & 42nd and Broadway” is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the Briley & Baxter Publications Bookstore. It will be released to the public May 30, 2023.
