The Art of Deception: Novel Set in World Trade Center

As an English/Writing major at Ithaca College, I started writing a novel, The Art of Deception, set in the Word Trade Center, once a financial mecca for stockerbrokers.

New York City can be cruel but not nearly as nasty as Russell Silverburg's former employee, Joan Clifton. After he raped her, she fled to California to create Share Well Industries, a company he is profitably investing his clients' money in. Russell is shocked when Share Well Industries' stock plummets. After some fact checking, he discovers the corporation is a scam Joan devised to get even—a financial rape that will leave Russell defenseless and vulnerable.
