However, thanks to a recent heart attack, the Sherlock Holmes of mystical crime investigation lives his worst nightmare: being taken off the streets and promoted to a cushy liaison post. The spirit of the war brought on by super-powered humans that left the economy and cities in ruin still lingers—especially within Jedidiah.
However, when a high-profile politician is assassinated in a magical fashion, Jedidiah goes off radar to investigate—hoping a record solve will prove his viability to both his boss and himself.
Jedidiah discovers the killer was possessed during the murder and one of the players involved in the staged kill is the detective’s brother, Seth—a radical supernatural rights activist who shares his brother’s bloodline, but not his narrow world view. Upon learning that Seth is actually a patsy who never planned to have anyone murdered and is now a target, Jedidiah must risk everything to clear his brother’s name by uncovering the true phantom threat. The journey that forces Jedidiah to examine his own haunted past and core beliefs leads him to stumble upon a conspiracy—one that threatens to enslave mankind.
