    Content warnings are per chapter, but general CWs are violence, trauma, death, and nonconsensual human experimentation.

    Summary

    It was the Roaring Twenties and Stede Bonnet was a wealthy land owner from New Zealand. He was as rich as could be and lived a comfortable life. But comfortable does not mean happy.

    Stuck in a loveless marriage with the need to get away, Stede decided to move to the land of the free to get into the bootlegging business and opened a Speakeasy. It was a rocky start, but he eventually got the hang of it and it was going great. That is until the notorious Mafia boss, Blackbeard, learned about him and gained an interest in who he was.

    At first the interest came from the story of a fancy man selling illegal alcohol, but then it grew after news came out that the same fancy man had some blood on his hands.

    Then it became something more when it turned out the man was actually horrible at his job.

    --

The morning after, letters upon letters arrive at his door step, invitations to work a case for somebody. For Seo Moonjo, notoriously ruthless criminal, for a person who couldn't be more dfferent to himself. At least that's what Jongwoo needed to believe.
