The Devil's Work
THE DEVIL'S WORK is an intriguing suspense/thriller that parallels current day events. It flirts with the thin line between fiction and reality, the real and the surreal, and makes you wonder about the agendas of banks, governments, and social media companies.
The world is experiencing geological disasters, pandemics, drought, famine, and the rise of a powerful extremist group. As economies collapse, world leaders implement a single currency and rationing system to distribute the necessities of life. To ration worldwide, authorities will use a single currency and payment system. All payments will be electronic and authorization, or denial, controlled by a single database compiled with information gathered from government and social media such as, among other things, race, color, creed, etc.
Tom MacDonald, a management consultant, on his way home for Thanksgiving, learns about a conspiracy led by Wasim Mirza. Mirza is the Chairman of a leading credit card company and he plans to highjack the payment system on Christmas Day for his dark intentions. Tommy shares his suspicions with Claire O'Reilly, his girlfriend, and world news editor.
Tom and Claire investigate and enlist the help of friends in high places and companies involved in the conspiracy. The closer they get the more danger they, and those around them, face, but it only serves to strengthen their love and resolve. Tom and Claire don't know if they're living in end times, or bad times, but they will do everything they can to figure it out and stop Mirza.
