In Nightscape: Cynopolis, a former counterculture radical starts a thought-virus that turns Detroit’s dogs feral and its underclass into jackal-headed beasts. The city erupts in chaos and nightmare violence. Communication in or out is impossible. The skies fill with lethal drone copters and airships bristling with heavy-duty cannon. Abandoned to their separate fates among hordes of monsters, the few surviving humans must find a way to elude the military blockade preventing their escape or defeat the virus at its source—before government forces sacrifice them all.
