Hard-boiled private eye SJ Rook and his colleagues at the Ross Agency are embroiled in two new tales of murder, violence, and dark twisted motives. In "Poetic License," Rook's NYPD pal Archie Lin calls in a favor when faced with a brutal murder at thHarlem Select School. "Watermark'" sees Rook and Sabrina Ross heading out of town for a security job. An eccentric artist in rural upstate New York is convinced someone means him harm. But who is really most in need of protection -- the creative genius, his four equally talented daughters, or the two detectives of the Ross Agency?
