The city-state of Denton is in a desperate position, situated between the two warring nations of the Kyirnath Contingent and Manyvale. And when put into desperate situations, people are likely to do terrible things, even when not stalked by the nameless fear left over from the ages of forgotten fantasy and mysticism. One of those citizens is Kory Rothchild, an advertising agent and amateur in journalism, a victim of harsh actions, times, and people. Whatever happens, one thing is for certain. Denton and its citizens have a great deal of trials yet to come.
