In July of 1927, Prohibition is the law of the land, gangsters control the city of Chicago, and Cabel Evans wants to die.

Haunted by nightmare of the Great War both waking and sleeping, Cabel Evans lives in self-imposed isolation at his family’s summer home in St. Joseph, Michigan, until a face from the past intrudes.  A fellow soldier, one who served under Cabel, needs help.  His teenage daughter, Kittie, was found floating in the river.  He wants Cabel to find the murdered.  Coerced by a debt that no amount of money can repay, Cabel begins an investigation, ushering in his reluctant return to society.

From the innocent distractions of the Silver Beach Amusement Park to the dark enticements of a Chicago speakeasy, Cabel must fight through the shadows of his past as he searches for the truth about Kittie’s death.  Answers lead to more questions, and as the body count rises, Cabel must finally face his most dreaded memory in the town where it took place: Chicago, Capone’s domain, where violence and corruption are currency and everyone is a pawn in someone else’s game.  What began as a chance to repay a debt has become an opportunity for redemption.  Yet just as Cabel realizes that he wants to live, someone else wants him dead.  Caught between the darkness within and the darkness without, he struggles for salvation.  Will Cabel find his way back into the light, or will the Shadowlands claim him forever?
