Status: Finished  |  Genre: Fantasy  |  House: Booksie Classic
New York City has done nothing but grow and grow, to literally become the city that never sleeps. Drugs have become more dangerous, laws are now being enforced with cruelty to the human race, and nobody sleeps anymore. Everybody is afraid of the odd people, the ones with powers that nobody else has. The law enforcement and private detectives all fear Whitewash Inc. because of the weird beings who lurk within it’s hallways, and the oddities that have begun emerging from it. Avery E. as the boss of it, is one of the most feared people in all of New York, and how can you blame the people; he’s dangerous. James Edward Daniels has recently been murdered within his large home, previously the captain of the NYC Police Department, and his daughter was left the entire fortune, though she’s spending it on drugs, alcohol and whatever else she can get her hands on to numb the pain of losing one of the only important men in her life. Jason Matthews, Mr. Daniels right hand man (though much younger) has stepped in to take care of both of his kids, to watch out for them, but the childhood fantasies that Nessa had about the twenty-some-odd old man have not gone away, and he’s beginning to notice. Now that Nessa is eighteen, she’s allowing her old wanting of attention from Jason to return, and she’s getting exactly what she thought she wanted, though it’s not all going how she planned.
