It happened. An elf has been murdered right in the boughs of the Mother tree. Don’t worry; Hank Mossberg is on the case.
San Francisco’s magical undercity is populated by every fantastical creature imaginable: dwarves, elves, centaurs, and thousands of fairies make it their home -but this is no fairy tale. The elven gangsters, street-walking nymphs, and pixie dust addicts will make sure of that. If you think humans invented organized crime, wait until you meet the goblins.
It’s Hank Mossberg’s job to keep them all in line. All he has to do is recruit the help of a bitter old wizard, break up a pixie dust ring, and keep his dwarf deputy Butch from getting them all killed in the process. No problem. Unfortunately, the fae have cops of their own, and they think Hank is the killer. It’s going to take a miracle to pull this one off.
