Product Overview

When Danny Holman leaves the cornfields of Iowa for the bright lights of Chicago, he expects his life to change. He just can't guess how much. A violent incident brings Danny the favor of a man known only as Mr. Patrise, who gives Danny a job, a home, and a new identity.

The City is a different world than Danny -- now called Doc -- knew. Long-vanished powers have returned, and more is going on on the streets than nightlife and street warfare. Power is gathering: a power rooted in terror, madness, and death. To fight it will require Doc to face what he most fears in himself; to defeat it will take something more than courage.

Annotation Danny Holman lives in strange times. Appalled at what the Earth has degenerated into, the Elven peoples who used to take care of it have returned to straighten things out--though there different factions favor cleanup methods of varying degrees of severity. Holman finds himself playing righthand man to mysterious nightclub owner affiliated who one set of elves--but which ones? A New York Times Notable Book for 2001.
First Line The Triumph TR3 was running sweet tonight; Danny Holman had been fiddling with it for a week straight, but he'd tinkered with it near nonstop for the eight months he'd owned it without any really definite results. But now he was doing--well, nearly sixty--through the September night, all along on I-80, a wire-wheeled golden bat out of hell.
Editors Note After saving the life a beautiful woman, Danny is propelled into a strange world where men and elves interact freely, with bizarre and violent results, and finds himself transformed into Doc Hallows, house medic for the powerful and dangerous Mr. Patrice. By the award-winning author of The Dragon Waiting.
