Empty Promises, a new book by Nick Shepherd, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Miguel Perez is not an ambitious person, leading a hedonist but ultimately unfulfilling life as a tennis pro at a high-end club and selling cocaine on the side. As he descends deeper into the cocaine business, the ruling drug cartel tracks him down, shooting Miguel and his friend Steve. With a sheer amount of luck, Miguel escapes just barely with his life, and lands into the clutches of Steve's wealthy investment financier father, Harry Edison. To Miguel's dismay, Harry has a plan for the young man: to transform him into a completely new person, someone who is successful, powerful, and driven. In other words, the son he never had.
