The life of private investigator Allison Carter is complicated enough just preventing the end of the world on a regular basis. But in the midst of her latest case she gets an unexpected call from her mostly-dead ex-boyfriend, who has a tip that may prove helpful or push the world further toward its destruction. Along the way, she encounters a closet troll with a stun-gun fetish, a theme park filled with demonic creatures in happy costumes, and unravels a secret that will change her life forever.

In every good mystery, there’s a moment when the detective confronts the suspects to try and figure out which of them is the killer. But generally speaking, the suspects aren’t powerful enough to fly you five miles straight up, rip off your limbs, and drop you into the Atlantic. That’s the problem faced by Lieutenant Detective John Riley, when he finally comes face-to-face with the Protectors, one of whom may have murdered the Huntsman. Meanwhile, an autopsy on a woman presumed to have died in a boating accident reveals a grisly connection to the Protectors…
