Alexis Silver has always defied convention: in the 1920s, she tried to attend college. She also prefers to live on land and she doesn’t really care for the taste of human flesh.

A century of existence comes with a certain amount of boredom, but work as a private investigator in the Pacific Northwest offers a pleasant combination of access to the sea, intrigue, and helping others.
When a well-to-do woman hires her to find her missing adventurer brother, Alexis feels like she’s landed straight in the middle of the sort of action movie they just don’t make anymore. The man’s trail leads all over the globe, but she suspects he’s not dead—yet.
An international mining conglomerate evidently wants whatever the missing explorer has found, and they’re more than willing to kill anyone who gets in their way.
