    Summary

    January, 1925.
    Manhattan.

    A spine cracks for the nth time, cool morning air rushes in as a sigh leaves a man’s lips. The pages are worn beneath his fingers, callouses brushing against print. They’re tinged yellow now for he’s left the book in the sun one too many times. The bell above the door echoes throughout the aisles and the blond tilts his head up towards the first customer of the morning.

    Clay Perkins is a lonely bookstore owner. Dream is one of the deadliest men in the city. Detective Davidson is looking for answers.

    Summary

    "I call it enchanter." Ren explained to Martyn as he poured him a small glass of the stuff and slid it across the table, right leg bouncing with unbridled energy. He was too proud of himself to not share it with anyone, and who better to share his secret with than his childhood friend?

    "Looks like regular whiskey to me." Martyn muttered with a playful smile, picking up the glass and swirling the alcohol around. Then, in one practised motion, he lifted it to his lips and took a sip.

    or

    It's 1924 and Ren, with some prodding on Martyn's part, decides he wants to open a speakeasy. Unfortunately, going in blind with little understanding of the way the underworld works tends to lead to a rocky experience.
