Federal Agent Roland Banks has always done things by the book. It was the only way to avoid being dragged into the mire of corruption and quid pro quo that is government in Prohibition America. But when Banks busts the wrong bootlegging operation in backwoods Virginia, his punishment is a bizarre assignment in Arkham, Massachusetts.
It is clear from the outset that Arkham keeps its secrets close, and Roland isn’t going to break open this case if he sticks to standard procedure. As the mystery and chaos surrounding the investigation threaten to unravel Roland, he must decide how much he’s willing to risk in order to uncover the truth.
