Debut Dagger 2023


Jeff Marsick


Gage, a twenty-six-year-old Army veteran suffering from PTSD, is in the process of burglarizing a home when the owners return and he sees the wife kill her husband. Knowing he can’t go to the police without putting himself in jeopardy, Gage sets out to punish the wife by blackmailing her. The problem is, Gage begins questioning what he saw and if he actually saw it, and the deeper he dives into discovering the truth of that night, the closer he gets to a conspiracy that might well cost him his life.
