O M P H A L O S
When Eugene DeLint, head of OMPHALOS, a philanthropic conglomerate with tentacles stretching across a drought-plagued, near-future world, is found butchered in his aerie high atop Ottawa, Detective Inspector Kevin Beldon, tortured by old griefs, is yanked from sick leave to battle new demons that will bring him to the edge of sanity. While his colleagues probe DeLint’s closest associates, Beldon holds stubbornly to the conviction that a serial killer known as the Widower—a man who has carved a brutal swath through Beldon’s family—is connected to DeLint’s murder. Aided in his investigation by old friend Chief Frank Thu, new partner Sergeant Brigid Ertelle, a clever crime computer named Mycroft, and his psychiatrist Dr. Ewan Randome, Beldon comes to believe that finding the killer will do more than restore order to a chaotic world—it will restore his life. But will it?
