Daniel Barlow is a former police detective, dismissed for breaching protocol while on duty; actions that saved his partner’s career at the cost of his own. He is now a private investigator. He has lived his entire life in a rotting place called Aisen City, formerly a proud and thriving engineering hub, but now desolate and long abandoned by the industry that created it. What was once a metropolitan, prosperous, and booming city has now slumped into a dreary gangland mess of crime, gambling, prostitution, drugs and despair. One day, a Mrs Burke visits Daniel’s office and asks him to gather information about her husband. She believes that he is cheating on her. He quickly discovers that this is no normal case, as he is pulled into investigating a string of ritual murders. Daniel has to think quickly, solve puzzles, interrogate people, wring information out of former colleagues and create more and more ingenious ways to get to the bottom of the mystery.
