⚠️This is the second book of the Checkmate Trilogy and contains spoilers for the first book. Description also contains spoilers.⚠️ I would highly recommend reading the first book before reading this, as it will help the storyline and some major details to make sense.

Twenty years after the death of Damien Furr, another evil rises from the depths of history, planning to bring a new world order into action. The Oculus is again in danger, and it's up to two new heroes to save it.

Detective David Dire has come a long way from the tragedies of his past and has made quite a name for himself in the city of Westfalls. Known as the "Mad Detective", he's been made famous for his slightly psychotic nature and expert detective skills. The only thing that could possibly get in the way of his career is the dark past that he fears more than anything else.

Lucy Marshier has dreamed of following in her father's footsteps and becoming a detective as long as she can remember, but being trained under the Mad Detective is not what she expected. Especially when a few odd murders and the uprising of a mysterious cult come in to play...
