Tyler Fairfax can't seem to catch a break.
A human living in the toon district of Animætropolis, the only affordable neighborhood in San Jose, he's been surviving on the kindness of strangers, his badger neighbors, and his boyfriend while he looks for a job. An unexpected encounter with a toon from the black-and-white days gets him exactly what he needs and then some.
But Tyler's problems aren't over yet; a stranger informs him people have been going missing around this toon and his live-in talent agent, and to keep an eye out for anything suspicious. Tyler’s curiosity gets the better of him; he learns what happened to at least one of those people...and now it's happened to him.
Phoenix McGee became a detective to show the world he was mature, reliable, capable of running his own life and business.
It’s just a shame he can’t adult his way out of a paper bag.
On the verge of losing everything, he takes on a simple case of suspected adultery, something to keep the lights on and the creditors at bay.
Little did he suspect his life would become a chaotic whirlwind of false leads, uneasy alliances, mob ties, and a woman who punches with a sedan. Bodies pile up as he struggles to keep things normal for himself and his assistant, Suzette DiMarco.
In Rouge Mal, Nevada, unusual is normal. Being a haven for the supernatural and superpowered, it’s common to see a vampire on the street while a psychic informs you your bus will be late. Just present your Black Card for proof of powers. That’s not to say there are no normal people, far from it.
