In a world where a werecat virus has changed society, Roan McKichan, a born infected and ex-cop, works as a private detective trying to solve crimes involving other infecteds.
The murder of a former cop draws Roan into an odd case where an unidentifiable species of cat appears to be showing an unusual level of intelligence. He juggles that with trying to find a missing teenage boy, who, unbeknownst to his parents, was â€œcatâ€ obsessed. And when someone is brutally murdering infecteds, Eli Winters, leader of the Church of the Divine Transformation, hires Roan to find the killer before he closes in on Eli.
Working the crimes will lead Roan through a maze of hate, personal grudges, and mortal danger. With help from his tiger-strain infected partner, Paris Lehane, he does his best to survive in a world that hates and fears their kindâ€¦ and occasionally worships them.
Excerpt (scroll down and expand)
Andrea Speed was born on parole in Seattle, Washington, way before it became hipster heaven and enslaved by the Starbucks Corporation. She always wanted to grow up to be Shaft, but she soon realized there were some flaws in her plan. A total nerd, she somehow stumbled into writing, which she enjoys very much, and hopes you’ll forgive her occasional typos. She lives in a nicer part of Tacoma, Washington, and knows more about fixing toilets than she ever thought she would. Also, if you’re ever at the Emerald City Comic Con, you’ll probably see her in a red plastic coat, asking people silly questions. Feel free to say hi, although don’t make any sudden moves around the guy in the Chewbacca costume; he’s kind of squirrelly.
