  • Jimmy Keene grew up outside of Chicago. Although he was the son of a policeman and rubbed shoulders with the city's elite, he ended up on the wrong side of the law and was sentenced to ten years with no chance of parole.

    Just a few months into his sentence, Keene was approached by the prosecutor who put him behind bars. He had convicted a man named Larry Hall for abducting and killing a fifteen-year-old. Although Hall was suspected of killing nineteen other young women, there was a chance he could still be released on appeal. If Keene could get him to confess to two murders, there would be no doubt about Hall's guilt. In return, Keene would get an unconditional release from prison. But he was also putting his own life in jeopardy.

    A story that gained national notoriety, this is Keene's powerful tale of peril, violence, and redemption.

    The Apple TV Limited Series, BLACK BIRD, based on IN WITH THE DEVIL, with a teleplay and produced by Dennis Lehane, will star Taron Egerton as Jimmy Keene, Ray Liotta, and Paul Walter Hauser. The TV tie-in paperback and e-book editions will be available on July 5th from St. Martin’s Press.
