Model Species, Apothic Man I

In the apothocratic city of Kenos, Alcander, an old man with a decrepit body and shattered sense of self, has a murderous plan to seize power and regain youth to replace a life he can't remember. Investigating a body with bizarre wounds fished from the bay are a middling apothynom, Inspector Paulos Gaent, and a religious objector to apothynom rule, Clerk Teria Bellaphaerenous. At cross-purposes, a private detective, Laros Nero, is hired by an anonymous client to track down Alcander for reasons other than justice. However, it will take more than keen investigative skills to stop Alcander. It will require the unearthing of dark apothic knowledge that has been buried for an age.
