A darkly complex, alternative noir tale following a bounty hunter in the corrupted city Acheron Park, exploring the nature of desperate men and deadlier women.
Madeline Steele is a hard living, hard drinking, new-to-the-job bounty hunter with a host of morals and vices and a cynical view of the world to boot. Born and raised in Acheron Park, she calls it home but it's more like an itch you can’t quite scratch. The city is a hard place for a good person to live, its rain splattered streets are in a state of constant shadow and corruption. On one wet Autumn evening she meets Douglas Brentworth, a wealthy, mysterious businessman famous for his fortune and his own lack of morals. He hires her to find the convict who took his daughter and bring them back safely.
Madeline accepts the job but before long she is tested on who she can trust and how far she is prepared to go when she finds herself waist deep in bodies, unwanted police attention, grifters, femme fatales and a mystery involving the corrupt Brentworth family and the gangster businessmen that run the town. Ultimately Madeline Steele must make the tough decisions: doing right or being happy, killing or being killed, uncovering the secrets no one wants to know about. Trusting is one thing, staying alive long enough is another.
