The Demons of Wall Street is a romantic noir occult adventure chronicling the adventures of Nora Simeon, a private investigator retained by the secretive Commission, the organization that oversees sorcery in the New York financial industry.
Nora Simeon hates demons. But as an investigator for the secretive Commission, the organization that regulates financial sorcery in New York City, she deals with the creatures a lot more than she’d like. Her latest case has her on the track of a rogue demon, escaped from magical bondage as an analyst for a leading investment bank.
On the demon’s trail, Nora crosses paths with a beautiful young man named Eyre. He’s too pretty and complaisant to be human, and too kind to be a demon in human form, but what else could he be? Together they become embroiled in the secret corruption at the heart of the financial industry. But before Nora can untangle a twisted skein of sorcerous murder and intrigue, she has to untangle her feelings for Eyre. And before she can do that, she has to find out who and what he really is.
So mark your calendars! The Demons of Wall Street, Nora Simeon Investigates #1 will be launching March 17th with the cover reveal February 17th and Pre-order is available now in our online store!
