Bait & Switch
by Tom Carrero
BAIT & SWITCH opens on a frigid night in South Philadelphia. The year is 1988 and eight friends stumble through the unforgiving city streets enjoying the seemingly endless party that is youth. What these eight friends don’t know is that, buried deep beneath the surface of their friendship, lay seeds of love, lust, envy, deception, betrayal and ultimately, some twenty years later… murder.
