Prologue/Epilogue

     A word of warning…a cool argon sign blinking in the sweltering heat of the night.

     The beginning and the end; the first and the last; the Alpha and the Omega…

     It was a time and place of desperation.  A vast city lost to time – a forgotten metropolis on the periphery of existence.  A place beleaguered, beaten and kicked in the teeth by circumstance.  An entire city rotten from the inside with no attempt to conceal the corruption and crime.  A place, in which, consequences often came before the actions which would spawn them occurred.  A place, in which, people seemingly flitted into and out of existence – a ghostly presence.  A place, in which, life was cheap; easily bought, sold or traded.  A place, in which, murder victims often lived long enough after their deaths to extoll some measure of vengeance.  A place, in which, one could meet a long-known acquaintance for the first time and forget a lifelong friend in the blink of an eye.  A place, in which, memories were erased and re-forged seemingly at random.  A place which people find, but never fully lose.  A place, in which, events occur over and over again, but never quite the same way twice.  A broken-down city filled with broken down souls.

     The beginning and the end; the first and the last; the Alpha and the Omega…

     A cool argon sign blinking in the sweltering heat of the night…a word of warning.
