    Summary

    To drown is not merely subjective to water--indeed, there are a great number of situations as well as substances people may find themselves hopelessly submerged in.

    Love.
    Hatred.
    Obsession.
    Addiction.
    Delight.
    Sorrow.
    Greed.
    Debt.

    Or even...ink.

    But as every body of water has a source...every story has a beginning.

    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.
