In a city like no other, filled with both the best and worst of humanity, Detective Gravel works the city beat - but when a stranger arrives, Cain, son of Abel, the creator of murder and the only man here who hasn't died, it can only mean trouble - trouble that Gravel needs to learn about in an interrogation.
