— THE MYSTIC INVESTIGATORS OF PATRICK THOMAS
In Baltimore, crime is hell. And in Hell crime is far worse. When a soul goes missing in Charm City, the Devil wants his due and Negral, forgotten god and Hell’s Detective, comes looking. When his own methods fail, he calls on Detective Bianca Jones despite the animosity between her and his boss. Together they search for his soul. In the process, Negral unwittingly a disciple and is forgotten no longer and forced to choose between honor and power. When an old enemy manages to make Negral disappear into the inside of a locked door mystery, the pair must work the case from the inside and out before the forgotten god fades away to oblivion.
In a bygone era, criminals owned the city but there were those willing to put on a costume to fight evil and corruption. Avenging the death of loved ones, they fight in the night for those who cannot defend themselves. The Nightmare put on his mask to settle the score for his chauffeur’s murdered daughter. The Pink Reaper donned her costume and gadgets to bring her uncle’s killers to justice. And Nemesis, the daughter of night herself, fights both the evil in this world and her own missing memory. Together and separately they battle for those the system has forgotten or is simply powerless to stop, that is until Zeus, the king of the gods who stole Nemesis’s memories, come back to finish the job and destroy anyone who dares stand in his way.

Beyond the veil lives the source of fairy tales, dark entities who are the embodiment of fable. They watch and wait for another chance to wreck havoc in the real world. None of them want anything to do with happily ever after. The fables take over humans and manipulate events to reenact their stories, each time with new, unwitting players trapped in the story cycle. If left unchecked, the death and destruction escalates to a worldwide scale. For over a thousand years the duty of stopping them has fallen on the agents of Templar Mason, known in the days of old as the Knights Templar. Witch Jillian Anderson is hunting a sorcerer who has found a way to summon the stories to the mortal plane. She must stop him before the fables can get a foothold on the real world and end their stories before they end hers.
