PCTown: Introduction

C. B. Wright
This is the city.

This is the city, and in that city is a teeming mass of desperate, grasping souls trying to chip out a living any way they can. If the only way to do that is to stick a knife in some poor Joe’s back, or step on the neck of anyone who gets in their way, well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

Jake Nero is a PC, a hard-working schlub in a cold, uncaring world. His partner is a paperclip who’s seen too much and now spends his time staring at the bottom of a bottle just to try to forget half of it. Together they’re hired to find the 1’s and 0’s behind the disappearance of a wealthy socialite’s fiance. Who was responsible? The father? The union? The mob?
