It is written by Website/{{SmackJeeves}} user "boxno," who also happens to be "hiruda" - author of a popular, but [[OrphanedSeries discontinued]], webcomic [[Webcomic/RockPaperScissors Rock Paper Scissors]]. The work is a mix of action, mystery, and psychological thriller genres, though it may also have some shades of SliceOfLife if the beginning of the first chapter was any indication.

The author updates three times a week on a fixed schedule. It is meant to be a SpiritualSuccessor of sorts to the aforementioned [[Webcomic/RockPaperScissors webcomic]], and thus both works have much in common.

Added DiffLines:

* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:Jack Porter did this, with help from his CleanupCrew among others. Not too many people were surprised since, if anyone could fake their death convincingly, it would be Jack.]]

** [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. He faked his death. Including the corpse.]]



* TraitorShot: [[spoiler:Jack]] has an unusual example. After he [[spoiler:talks to Olivia's father about what happened with her mother and says he's going to go talk to Olivia, Mr. Kane thanks him. When Jack tells him that he'll "put in a good word" for him, the panel shows nothing of his face but a big, devious, grin. Unusual in that Mr. Kane can still see his face, but only the audience knows that this grin [[ManipulativeBastard truly means]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* SharpDressedMan: Jack very often is. The police chief may be even sharper.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Olivia is shaping up to go through this. [[spoiler:Specifically, after being sent to prison after being found with Jack's blood all over herself, she decides that she's sick of being used and doesn't want to be a perpetual victim anymore.]] We'll see how that goes.

Added DiffLines:

* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Jack]] is quickly shaping up to be one of these. He's [[spoiler:a psychologist and has been playing everyone around him for a long time at this point, what with his [[CleanupCrew profession]]. Olivia seems to be his current plaything.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShrinkingViolet: Poor Olivia has a hard time asserting herself or engaging with others.
