Something is on a killing spree in San Francisco, seeking out and attacking magic's practitioners and their Ifrit familiars. Mason, a jazz guitarist who moonlights as a cop of the supernatural (of sorts), has a very personal interest in this something: odds are good he helped create it. From official release/information:
Product Description: Mason is an enforcer, keeping magical practitioners on the straight and narrow. His "dog" Louie, is a faithful familiar who's proven over and over that he's a practitioner's best friend. But this time, Louie's in the line of fire when practitioners in San Francisco accidentally unleash a monster into the world.
