During the dark days of WWII, Hitler’s mad scientists and magicians hatched a terrible scheme to turn the war’s tide – take body parts from dead American GIs and stitch them together, then animate the results with ancient wizardry to create an army of undead super soldiers.
They only had a chance to create one of the patchwork men in a secret Black Forest laboratory before a squad of elite American paratroopers called the Black Eagles heard of their plan and attacked. The patchwork man went with them and awakened with a fractured memory, inhuman strength and toughness and a name taken from the dog tags around his neck – Dwight Harrow. Thanks to the Black Eagles, Harrow used his newfound freedom to storm across Europe and helped to bring the Third Reich down.
Now the war is over and Dwight Harrow’s got a new job – paranormal private detective for Los Angele’s rich and famous.
Starlets, sleazebags and sinners come to him when there’s a monstrous problem to be solved and for the proper payment, Dwight’s happy to sort it out. Along with his smart secretary Sophie Gold, Dwight’s taken on monsters, madmen and moguls– and always manages to come out on top. He’s got the knowledge, the firepower and the raw toughness to tangle with the things that go bump in the night – and win.
But now there are some new arrivals in Los Angeles: a European noble family with an appetite for power and a hunger for blood.
They’re called the Druganovs and they’ve got a plan to turn LA inside out and paint the city red with spilled blood.
A violent murder puts Dwight directly in their path and now he and Sophie are about to take on their toughest case yet. It will bring them against the worst the Los Angeles’ underworld has to offer, from corrupt cops, sleazy tabloid hounds and zoot-suited gangsters to freakish vampires, hungry werewolves and Anita Druganov, a dangerous dame with an agenda of her own.
With Anita on his mind, Dwight is pitted against his own monstrous nature – with all of Los Angeles hanging in the balance. This dark tale of gangsters, ghouls and glitz combines red-blooded horror with the crime and grime of classic noir.
