Nominated for an AASC Publishing Award and an Association of Arts & Social Change People's Choice Award, Hobson's Gate tells the story of a homicide detective battling personal and, what may be, real demons in his city.
While losing ground on the most brutal murders Southtale Gate has ever seen, Detective Joseph Hobson begins to lose his mind. In the span of a week there are dozens of bodies, massed together in a frozen pile of slaughter. With no evidence to speak of, even the messages in blood left at the scenes present more questions than they answer. As fatigue, depression and frustration set in, Hobson seems to be losing on both fronts: within the walls of his city, and within his mind.
Can Hobson fight back his own demons and save the people from the worst killing his force has seen? Or will he succumb to the broken record of his mind, and let these demons take him down...and city along with it?
Hobson's Gate Trauma is the first book of a three book series including Trauma, Pressure and Descent.
