Into the Devil’s Den: Snared by Their Own Lies by Ellen W. Martin Excerpt Tour and Giveaway with Pine Enshrined Reviews and Goddess Fish Promotions.

For twenty-years Sam Steele lived with a lie gnawing at his conscience — for twenty-years his only child believed her mother was dead. Without warning his ex-wife springs from the ashes of the past and reaches out to him in his capacity as a veteran Immigration Custom Enforcement agent.

When Sam’s ex dumps a father’s living nightmare into his lap, he must choose between doing his duty as a law enforcer and jeopardizing his cherished relationship with his daughter. Circumstances beyond his control leave him no choice. Before he can seek forgiveness, TERRI ANNE disappears. Sam neglects his duties as an ICE agent and becomes obsessed in finding her. In the wake of his search he unravels a trail of murder, illegal Green Card marriages, and unveils a jihadist’s plot to launch a terror attack on American soil.

INTO THE DEVIL’S DEN – SNARED BY THEIR OWN LIES weaves a tangled tale of suspense, murder, and treachery. Each twisted circumstance is triggered by that one well-intended lie Sam Steele told his child — a lie that mushrooms into several more falsehoods and leaves multiple lives dangling by a single thread. The daunting task of facing the truth and the race against time pushes ICE agent Sam Steele’s integrity to the limit.


Vonda leaned her head against the cool stainless steel sink, fought the next wave of nausea still rolling in her stomach. Head still down, she reached over, turned on the water and rinsed out her mouth and then the sink. 

Relief he was gone should have calmed the uncontrollable panic darting through her, but it didn’t. Jaali was a powder keg ready to blow. This was absolutely the last time she’d marry a foreigner. She didn’t need the agony or the fear. Vonda filled a glass with tap water, stared out the kitchen window — the darkness racing across the swamp mirrored the gloom in her heart. Why she ever married that animal Jaali, she’d never understand. 

She took a swallow of water. Of course she understood why — it was for Rashid. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for him. Then, he had to go and ruin it all, con her into marrying Jaali. And, now he’d replaced her with that college girl. How could he do that to her? 

Vonda turned the half-full tumbler upside down in the sink. None of this mattered now. Life as she knew it was crumbling around her. The blood in her veins turned to ice.

A proud wife of a retired Air Force officer, mother of one son and grandparent of three grandchildren, Ellen, didn’t start writing until retirement years, and even then she considered writing a hobby.  In 2019 she published a historical fiction, SONS OF CUBA, a two book series.  INTO THE DEVILS DEN is her third publication.  During the early months while COVID-19 was wreaking havoc through the nation and around the world, she took the opportunity to write another suspense thriller entitled SHATTERED LOYALTIES which she hopes will be published and released sometime in 2021.
