Most everyone succumbs to The Calling, but Will chooses earth. He has his reasons. Only, he didn't think about how hard it would be to stay clean, what might happen when he couldn't, or what kind of people would also choose to stay. When he lets Jack out of a jail cell, he has no idea what kind of evil he has just unleashed. Maybe he should stop pretending to be a cop.
Will finds light and a new chemistry in this dark world. Rachel believes in him, at first. A birthing civilization doesn't believe in Will at all. Will must learn to be a real sleuth as love, murder, addiction, and madness close in real fast.
