Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem takes place at the end of the Roaring 20s in Harlem. Henson gets a job from a spiritual leader named Daddy Paradise to retrieve his adult daughter who had been kidnapped. He does his job, but then finds himself having to protect himself and her until her father can deliver a speech at a mass rally. The job will put him up against a notorious gangster and the famous inventor Nikola Tesla. Henson will find himself in a race against the clock to save people’s lives as a powerful meteor fragment that he brought back from the Artic years ago is wanted by evil, powerful people.

One-Shot Harry takes place in Los Angeles in 1963 as Harry Ingram has returned from war and taken work as a new photographer and process server. Racial tensions are high at the time and he takes a risk every time he photographs a crime scene. He heads out after a crash one night when he recognizes the vehicle as belonging to an old Army buddy. The LAPD says the crime is an accident, but Ingram isn’t buying it and decides to play detective. Harry will head into the seamy underbelly of LA in hopes of finding justice.
