Margrit is a lawyer, a very good one. She has the potential to rise far above her current position, but her overdeveloped sense of responsibility keeps her in her job at Legal Aid, fighting mostly lost causes and impossible to win cases. She also has an irrational attraction to danger, which she indulges by solitary late night runs in New York City’s Central Park. One night, she meets a tall, pale man who stops her simply to say hello. Later that night, when a woman is murdered, and witnesses describe a tall man - with hair so light it could be white, and pale, smooth skin - Margrit realizes that she brushed close to death. But is her pale man the same as the murderer? Alban keeps approaching her, denying his involvement, claiming his innocence, begging her to help him find the real murderer. And Margrit finds herself unable to stop getting involved. Once she does, though, she finds that everything she knew as truth yesterday is based on fallacy, and her New York must differ from everyone else’s for the rest of her life. Alban is a gargoyle, one of the five Old Races that still exist within the city limits. Margrit will have to deal with each one if she’s to solve the murders and save Alban from discovery and certain death.
