As a private detective he spends his life seeking out dark places where demons lurk. But lately he's been drifting along, taking on cases about insurance fraud or medical malpractice. Until Clifford Widmore walks into his office, and changes everything. Clifford, an adult scion to the vast Widmore fortune, needs Artisan's help. Clifford's twin brother, Alexander, has vanished. Although 'Zander' has alienated himself from his family in the past, Clifford believes that this time foul play is involved. The closer Artisan gets to finding answers, the more danger his life is in. He soon descends into a mirror-world where friends and enemies have a way of looking very much alike. Artisan hatches a plan to uncover the truth. He sets off on a journey across the globe and, along the way, learns that the Widmore family is full of dangerous secrets. Some even worth killing for.
