Behind the badge is an assassin. Behind the assassin is a monster with scars to hell and back. Operators like Alistair Rohan never die; they retire and go into law enforcement. It's a pay cut. The hours are bad and he must keep his secrets hidden. Distrustful peers morph his name to "Alice" and keep a careful distance. It's not his total lack of fear or his indifference to pain that drives friends away, but little things like how he wears long sleeves in the summer and disappears when off duty. Attention to detail earned him high marks in the academy, but his field-training officer once commented that it seemed like he was always planning a hit, always ready to send bad guys straight to hell without a trial. The creature inside wants out. He is a paranormal punisher with a past that would ruin a lesser hero. Can society really blame a man shaped by his father's sins? And if that history has led him to defend the weak, who's going to question his methods? He follows the law obediently, never takes a sick day, and risks his life for people who call him a freak. Rohan knows a secret. Evil devours its own, reaching up between good deeds and honorable intentions. Bad news for a man with a vendetta, because he's about to pay full price for his sins; right after he takes out the man who made his formative years an exercise in pain tolerance. He left the cold reality of the Assassin's Guild behind and cherishes the rules of law and the routine of service more than anyone would believe. But he is what he is. He does what he does. Iron self-control can only take him so far from perdition.
