Book 4 of The Inspector Dalton Files
Shadows are not always defined by light.
A periodic sweep of advanced technology on Earth has revealed unusual activity. The Earth Ward sends Dalton’s team to investigate, which leads them to the source. The problem is the source is in the Quadrangle, an area in southwestern Colorado that consists of four major cities and is a hotbed of nonhuman activity.
Another problem is dealing with the various nonhuman factions. Some have requested the team’s help, while others are outright hostile. Dalton and his team will need to navigate that as they perform their investigation.
Relations with the Earth Ward in the Quadrangle have been tenuous, and how the Earth Ward responds when multiple issues are on the line is in question. Dalton will show why he continues to be a top investigator, even when things don’t go his way, by displaying one of his core traits—tenacity.
