Oakland, California. A city of dueling natures: Mansions and slums. Forests and concrete jungles. Unity, within rebellion. A bustling metropolis with an underbelly as ugly as Lake Merritt is beautiful.

To save one from the other, one police officer will do the wrong thing for all the right reasons. To uphold the law, they will bend the rules. Is this Oakland’s savior, or yet another problem plaguing the city? You’ll have to ask around- because in Oakland there is no line to cross, there is only the grind. In Oakland, the ends are questioned, but not the means used to reach them. In Oakland, this crusader will discover there is only one rule of law:

To protect the light, you must live in the shadow.



It’s all led up to this point! Swiff and the OPD finally face off! Will he go down quietly? And once and for all… WHO IS SHADOW? Find out in the stunning conclusion to “Harsh Lights, Cruel City”!
