“Borland grumbled under his breath as the bus lurched through traffic. Headquarters had said it would be a one-hour wait for a squad car so Borland told them to stuff themselves; he’d get there on his own dime. Barely back in the squad for ten months, and they were already treating him like a second-class citizen.”
WHILE HYDE hunts for a Variant-enhanced serial killer, a fight with a skin-eating granny almost sends Borland back into retirement. Skin eaters, secrets, and murder close in as the squad scrambles to contain the Variant Effect.
VARION was a popular medication that could cure anything from Anxiety and Depression to Schizophrenia and Zoophagia. Everybody took it back in the day, because there were no side effects … AT FIRST. By the time they learned about the Variant Effect it was too late. It’s been twenty years since Borland battled the Variant Effect, and twenty since he let his partner get skinned alive. Now they have been ordered back into action to meet a terrifying new threat.
