THE FUTURE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
It’s been 11 years since the police were abolished in Chicago. Now, in Neo Chicago—a nickname given to the city by its populace—murder is a rare and swiftly handled affair. So when a man is killed in a moment of rage, his killer is quickly apprehended by the Safety Commission, and no one—including private investigator Clarke Sparrow—thinks twice about it, until an old man with a crazy story walks into Sparrow’s office.
According to the old man, the recent killing is the start of something much worse. A powerful group plans to restore a bygone era, and force Neo Chicago to return to it.
