Wesley “Tennessee” Beauregard hunts the deadliest game: metahumans identified as threats by the government of the United States. But when a confrontation with a dangerous metahuman known as the Crocodile causes Tennessee to question everything he thought he knew about the dangerous world of espionage and realpolitik, he sets out a search for answers which will prove more dangerous than he can imagine. Aided by his metahuman partner, Marion Merlot, Tennessee begins to unravel a web of danger and deceit. But all may not be as it seems, and sometimes asking a question can be just as dangerous as the answer.
