    Summary

    A few days before Christmas 1948, hard-boiled Detective Stiles Stilinski was hired to investigate his nemesis, New York's powerful criminal boss, Theo Raeken. There's only one problem. His employer is Scott McCall, Theo's favorite plaything and well-known singer at Theo's club, The Chimera. It's a risk, but trusting a pretty face might be the only way to bring down a criminal empire...or wind up in a shallow grave.

    Or, that Sciles detective noir story!

    Summary

    - Denerim. The city of tears, the city of thieves, of sex, of death, of love, of despair. The city of magic. The city where there were more sirens than birdcalls, more TEMPLAR officers than civilians, more apostates than registered mages. Where dreams of success came to die, and realities of dark fantasies and desires came alive. -

    Cullen Rutherford is a disgraced ex-TEMPLAR, now a Private Detective in one of the most notorious cities in all of Thedas. Ready to give up his ties to his former life and forget all the atrocities he once performed in the name of justice, all his plans are shattered by the arrival of an old friend with a new mission for him. But can he solve this mystery before someone else uses it to tear down the TEMPLAR order, and throw Denerim into chaos?

    (Pretty much contains all the main characters from the Dragon Age universe)
