The cold barrel of the gun pressing into my temple didn’t force adrenaline into my veins. My heart was not racing. For the first time in a long time, I was not scared. I knew the man standing next to me wanted to kill me. I know that was the plan. I wasn’t bait. I wasn’t going to be rescued.

I was going to be tossed into the ground like a piece of trash.

There are thousands of tales and urban legends surrounding the various gangs around the globe. Some choose to rule over their territories with brute force, eradicating anybody in their way, while others use charm and persuasion to force others to do their work for them. One thing remains consistent throughout every story, however – you don’t want to mess with the mafia, no matter who you are or where you live.

For Andrea Ricci, crossing the New York mafia is about to change her life. After a chance encounter leaves her a witness to a mob crime, she finds herself thrust into the world of the mafia and left at the mercy of dangerous character Luca Mancini. Taken from the scene of the crime, she finds herself kept captive by them – at least for now.

Control takes place in an industry that is usually romanticised within fiction through the eyes of an outsider. Through Andrea’s eyes, the reader is introduced to the dark side of New York City, with all of the grit and spilled blood of a dirty underworld spread throughout the chapters. Readers are exposed to a whole new world through the gripping narrative that paper planes_ creates. Standing currently at just four chapters, Control will grip your interest with its no-holds-barred approach. Let yourself be immersed in the New York underground and read this story that will keep you guessing at every turn!
