Enter To Win: Starting Oct 31st, Ending Dec 1st.
It is late Winter in the year of 1990. Jason Parks is a disgraced NYPD Detective turned Private Investigator in his hometown of Philadelphia… and he’s also a Drunk. There’s nothing new about this combination; it happens all too often in detective stories. Jason has few friends on the Philadelphia Police Force; they have little regard for a drunken ex-cop. Because of his drunkenness, Jason has lost several clients and can barely keep his agency afloat. While staying sober long enough; searching for a Missing Person in the Pocono Mountains, Jason has a billion to one accident in which he acquires certain abilities. After laying comatose under three feet of snow the Aftermath of the accident opens up a whole new set of frustrations and tests of his resolve while dragging his psyche nearly to the breaking point.
Coping with his altered life while wrestling with the dilemma of whether he should use his abilities to assist local law enforcement or mind his own business, fosters an internal debate that has him questioning just about every move he makes. There is also the local media that can’t make up its collective mind if he is a champion of Good or a force for Evil.
The trail to catch the Crime Czar in his quest to take over and run the Mobs in the city takes Jason from Philadelphia to New York City where he must dispose of the demons of his past there, then back to the City of Brotherly Love to forestall a bloodbath between the local Mob Boss and his challenger. The trail of deceit and betrayal, suspicion and lies, takes Jason from the skies to the ground and deep under it
Will Jason overcome: the frustration, accusations, mistrust and his own internal strife and self-doubt or will he: turn his back, wipe his hands clean of it all and walk away? Even he is not sure of the outcome.
