Urban fantasy meets noir and humor in the first Conrad Brent adventure.

Wizards and monsters walk the streets of Brooklyn -- but only a small handful of people are born with the gene that allows them to perceive and use magic.

As much as he hates to admit this, Conrad Brent is a sort of a wizard cop. He is the agent of The Watch in charge of Brooklyn, NY and his job is to protect ordinary people from anyone -- or anything -- who might use magic to harm them.

When an extremely rare shard of an Atlantean crystal, capable of amplifying the magic of its wielder hundredfold, shows up in Williamsburg, Conrad hatches the plan to acquire this valuable artifact while he trains and evaluates a potential apprentice.
