DescriptionThree days of riots have left the Hollows a war zone. The fragile racial, social and economic fractures that ran under Cymbeline have ruptured with seismic intensity leaving hundreds dead. Freshly promoted Lieutenant Simon Buckley is assigned to a flying squad responding to newly discovered bodies. But he finds that not all the deaths are due to simple violence born of racial hatred and desperation. Someone is using the chaos to cover foul murder. Simon’s investigation threatens the fragile peace left in the aftermath of the riots and leads his teams to discover a deeper conspiracy, one that threatens the very foundation of the Commonwealth: the Royal Family.
These Nior infused titles perfectly balance fantastical fantasy with police procedural, insuring every fan of either or both will have a satisfying read.
ExcerptSimon slid the needler into the holster at the small
of his back and approached the sledge. The smell was stronger there. Even before he reached the sledge, he saw the rust brown stain that spread like a fan across the concrete floor.
The body lay in a heap on the far side of the sledge. The pale flesh had become swollen and bloated in the week since the man had fallen. Simon couldn’t see his face, but he recognized the jacket the man wore. He had one just like it from his Civil patrol days—a serge jacket, short waisted, dark blue with gold lettering across the back, a service number and a capital WH. They had found Francis Killian.

About Author Bruce Davis
“Obviously the themes of racial prejudice and power relationships are a big part of the story. I didn’t set out to write a book about those things. I wanted to write a good story using fantasy tropes in a modern setting. But any complex modern society has all of the same issues that we face today, including racism, political corruption and abuse of power.”
