Something with these latest murders isn't quite right. It isn't the symbols written on the wall. It isn't the image carved into the victim's back. It is something else, something Tony can't quite put his finger on, something he doesn't want to understand.

Development Pitch

The book is both a detective murder mystery and an introduction to a supernatural world that a viewer gets introduced to at the same time as the main character, which would make it more digestible to audiences. Anthony Hollownton is an every day kind of guy who is thrown into a supernatural situation and he remains grounded in the 'real world' as long as he can through the series. We get to watch him struggle with not only beings he did not know existed but lying about it to his partner and hiding the clues he is finding to catch the killer. He also finds out that those around him are not as they seem as the supernatural world becomes wider and more all-encompassing. He also contends with the possibility that a dead friend is visiting his dreams to give him advice.Throughout the book (and series) Tony himself learns and has to accept that he might actually belong in the supernatural world he stumbled into and a vision of a horrible future shows him that he might not be as good, loyal, and honorable as he thinks he is.
