The city of Arcadia is a refuge for mythical creatures from the mundane world. Here, elves rub elbows with revenants, lycanthropes strike power deals with gnomes, and no humans are allowed. When prominent werewolf Richard Moreland is murdered in the Fae downtown district, a trio of hard-boiled characters must come together to solve the crime. O’Brien, a down-and-out redcap who was dismissed from his job as a homicide detective after dipping his hat in one too many crime scenes, discovers the body and the only witness, a kobold named Kevin. Carl, a spirit bound to a decaying corpse by a nefarious necromancer, receives a mysterious package from Moreland’s secretary, and sets out to decipher its meaning. Finally, Zane is a street magician who sees Moreland as his shot at fame and fortune, sets out to discover who spoiled his big break. When the investigation leads them to Vinnie the Cat, a local crime lord and nightclub owner, they soon discover that the murder has far more angles than they previously thought, and that the way things shake out could shape the city’s political future. Can they find the culprit and see justice done, or will they instead find themselves buried in lonely graves by the roadside? Listen to find out!
