Finn M'Coul, the hero of Irish mythology, is assigned a new case by his boss Viledark, a monstrous hoglike being and an immortal shapeshifter. Together they run a private detective agency on Capitol Hill in modern-day Washington, D.C. A retired general has hired them to find his missing nineteen-year-old son, who appears to be involved with a new drug. Shotweed increases the male orgasm many times, in both duration and intensity, and is on the rise in the local gay community. It is highly addictive and may be fatal, and it only works on gay men. Finn's search leads him to a psychotic supervillain who is unleashing deadly mischief for his own perverse entertainment. Drugs, monsters, and a man with a hook stand in Finn's way as he works to save a beautiful boy and others like him.
Supernatural private detective Finn M’Coul knows the underworld is still pushing shotweed, a wickedly addictive and fatal drug, and his handsome young friend Gray is in its thrall. Finn goes undercover, following Gray into a drug treatment center that was once a mental hospital…haunted by its history of straitjackets, lobotomies, and sterilizations. He arrives in time for an outbreak of murderous insanity. Is it caused by a parasite infecting these addicts, or the actual ghosts of the asylum?
His task is complicated by cracks in the skin of reality. Through these fissures, glimpses of the past come through, along with demons who try to get into bed with the inmates and sexually violate them. Is this some hellish experiment gone wrong? Finn must survive to find the truth…and his friend.
