It’s not easy to separate your work and family life when you are one of the most respected and feared drug dealers in Chicago, and Daman knows this all too well. On the one hand, he is a family man who wants to keep his loved ones safe, but, on the other hand, he is a ruthless gangster who has never been the same after his brother was murdered. Since this tragedy happened, Daman has uttered a single scary contradiction every night before going to sleep: ‘I’m living, but I’m not alive’. Actually, this is the title of the first book in the ‘Black Caviar Thriller eBook Series’ written by Psymon H. – ‘I’m Living But I’m Not Alive’.

Critics have compared the first installment in the series with the TV blockbuster ‘Breaking Bad’ and HBO’s ‘The Wire’. The author has already published the second book, and the third book is waiting to be released in late June 2014. He is currently working on books 4 and 5, and in June he also intends to publish a sideline series called ‘Black Caviar After Dark’.

‘I’m Living But I’m Not Alive’ is not only an action-packed psychological thriller with a complex and intriguing plot, but it is also a thought-provoking story that tests the boundaries of fact and fiction. Readers will easily identify themselves with some of the characters, and they will constantly wonder if they would have made different decisions if they were in the same situations as the characters in Psymon H.’s novel. By the end of the book, they will realize it’s impossible to tell exactly who is the good guy and who is the villain, because all characters have their own reasons and motivations to act the way they do even when their deeds are horrible.

The lead character, Daman, has his own secrets and weaknesses that can be used against him, even if the people he works with consider him an evil genius. When he meets smart and sexy Jane at a luxurious boat party, his life is turned upside down. He is not sure he can resist her, and he knows that such a woman will probably get him into deep trouble. On the other hand, Jane herself might get more than she bargained for when she falls in love with Daman. Their relationship is explosive, and the readers will turn the pages as fast as possible to find out what happens next.

Fans of the genre will be glad to know that ‘I’m Living But I’m Not Alive’ will be free on Amazon on 3/17 and 3/18.
