In the Dreamscape, it's impossible for a dreamer to simply go missing. But that's exactly what has happened, and it's up to Dream Police Detectives Joe Thursday and Katie Black to find her...a trail that leads to a living nightmare who has gone too far. Meanwhile, Joe has come to realize that he hasn't been told the truth about the man who keeps appearing to him...the former partner he doesn't now remember. If the time comes for Joe to stand against the vast powers of the Dreamscape, will Katie stand with him...or turn away?
Who exactly are the Dream Police? Where do they come from? How are prospective officers chosen? Those seem like fairly straightforward questions...except that they are cover for a secret that goes back to the beginnings of civilization, a secret that must be protected at all costs, especially from the inquiries of Lieutenant Detective Joe Thursday. Joe has always been a loyal member of the Dream Police...but when his instincts as a cop tell him that the people he's working for are aligning against him, how far will he go to find the truth about them?
