Hell's Half Acre
Cast adrift after the blood symphony of Penny Dreadful, Phineas Poe is chasing answers in the form of a woman - a professional killer and amateur field surgeon named Jude. He tracks her to San Francisco, where he finds her tangled in a dangerous endgame with John Ransom Miller, a wealthy sociopath with a very specific bloodlust. Jude, meanwhile, nurses a revenge fantasy against a powerful family that wants her dead, but she can't touch them without Miller's help. In exchange, Miller wants Jude to commit an unspeakable crime. Alone and outgunned, Phineas hopes to save Jude from herself, make sense of his past, and safely navigate a torturous internal landscape he calls Hell's Half Acre.
