In this period piece, Clive Barrington is a young immortal living in Los Angeles in 1930. While doing work for Evangeline on the surface, Clive is also indulging in his greatest passion - acting. Already an accomplished star of popular radio plays, Clive must now contend with the advent of "talkies" - motion pictures that reveal the faces of the actors and would eliminate the anonymity that radio offered an immortal trying to conceal his identity. But greater challenges are soon thrust upon him as talk of a growing rebellion within Leviathan reaches the surface. Clive is soon asked to choose sides, and Bennu makes it known that every choice can have deadly consequences.
