Carter's a homicide cop in Titanshade, an oil boomtown where 8-tracks are state of the art and all the best sorcerers wear designer labels. It's also a metropolis teetering on the edge of disaster.

When a murder investigation goes sour, Carter finds himself undermined by corrupt coworkers and staring at a suspect list that includes half the city’s elite. Carter has no choice but to find the killer before the investigation turns into a witch-hunt and those closest to him pay the ultimate price on the filthy streets of Titanshade.
