FOREWORD: While it won't rob you of the reading experience to have not read either book #1 of the Crimson Shadow series, Noir, or the first novel in the Death Metal saga, Curtain Call, this piece is a crossover novella featuring the characters introduced and established in those two works. Some scenes in this piece also reference points in that are established in some of the short stories made in Crimson Shadow: The Dirty Dozen. If you have not yet read these other works, don't fret; this story, like all of my other works, will not leave you in the dark as a standalone piece.
