Moments before the Glory of Day wrecked, a former underworld associate of Burn s handed him an unusual and complicated cog for safekeeping. But the artifact-cog quickly draws Burn unwanted attention too much of it, from too many of Veridon s most powerful factions, casting doubt on even his closest allies. A far more dangerous and unpredictable enemy has also joined the manhunt, carving a bloody trail across the city, while Burn s frantic search for answers only leads to more questions. At the heart of it all, the mysterious cog, which hides a secret potent enough to shake Veridon to its very core, and recast Burn s entire existence.
