Chicago, 1931: In the wake of Al Capone’s conviction for tax evasion, The Windy City is in a state of upheaval. Gangsters jockey for position in the criminal hierarchy, eager to fill the power vacuum. The recession has entered its second year, inspiring Socialist agitators and sympathizers to drum up support for The People’s Revolution. When a wise guy capo and an investigative reporter go missing in the meatpacking district, two teams of Investigators step in to solve the mystery. What they discover is an ancient evil beyond comprehension, and a conspiracy that feeds upon the poorest of the neighborhood’s immigrant workers. Can they survive their encounter with the eldritch power that haunts the tunnels beneath the Chambliss Meatpacking Plant, or will they succumb to madness? Listen to find out!
