Description

“Where were the bodies?”

“All over,” he said, “Some were whole, some were in pieces, some were…”

“Some were what?”

“Hard to describe. Crushed, I guess. Like a bug when you step on it and drag your shoe.”

Lake house destroyed. 38 dead. Cause unknown.

Federal Agent Roland Banks has always done things by the book. It was the only way to avoid being dragged into the mire of corruption and quid pro quo that is government in Prohibition America. But when Banks busts the wrong bootlegging operation in backwoods Virginia, his punishment is a bizarre assignment in Arkham, Massachusetts.

It is clear from the outset that Arkham keeps its secrets close, and Roland isn’t going to break open this case if he sticks to standard procedure. As the mystery and chaos surrounding the investigation threaten to unravel Roland, he must decide how much he’s willing to risk in order to uncover the truth.

The Dirge of Reason is an Arkham Horror novella by Graeme Davis that throws you headfirst into the roaring twenties where tragedy has struck the small town of Arkham, Massachusetts. During an apparent freak accident, the entire New England Virtuosi Orchestra perished and federal agent Roland Banks has been sent all the way from Washington D.C. to investigate. The official report reads, “Explosion, cause unknown.” The house looks like a howitzer shell hit it, but nobody knows why and the local authorities weren’t encouraged to look very hard. Could it have been bootleggers? A mob hit? Or something more sinister, something unnatural?
