Approach the dark corner booth ...

Ten stories featuring Jericho Syn, alias The Scarecrow — lurking in The Shadows, shining law and vengeance on the city’s underbelly. Just walk to darkened corner booth …

In Harbor City there are the police, and there’s the Outfit. And in the middle is Jericho Syn. He walks the fine line between crime and the law. Known as the Scarecrow, he’s the man to see when no one else can or will help you.

Syn knows where the bodies are buried. He should — he’s put a few in the ground himself. But he’s always willing to help if the cause is just and the money is right.

So if you’re in trouble and don’t know where to turn, just step into The Shadows and look for Jericho Syn in the back booth. It’s dark there, better for him to hear your confession. But don’t expect absolution. The Scarecrow only deals in penance and he makes certain the guilty always pay.
