P.I. Bellamy Vale isn’t your everyday investigator. Moonlighting as Death’s earth-bound envoy, he deals with the weird, wacky, and slightly unhinged. In addition to investigating and solving conventional crimes and cases, ranging from the white collar to something out of The Godfather, effectively putting his offbeat style of law enforcement to good use, Vale also faces off creatures and monsters that you thought were just folklore.
When a mysterious beast savagely mauls random residents of Cold City, the police assume that these are the killings of a rogue wolf. Ordered by Death herself to investigate, Vale has no choice but to obey, for his boss is not someone to disappoint—if he wants to keep breathing, that is. Caught between the living ignorant and the corrupt, never been born, non-human beings who terrorize our natural world Vale doesn’t have a lot of people he can turn to for help. And when he finds himself on the tail of a berserker, an elite warrior of the Norse mythology, that list dwindles down drastically.
