For those of you who are not familiar with Killadelphia, here's a brief rundown and I HIGHLY recommend you checking out the series:

"When a small-town beat cop comes home to bury his murdered father-the revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr.-he begins to unravel a mystery that leads him down a path of horrors that will shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality... and vampires."

The demon Corson has surfaced from the underworld to possess a once-wronged man, and his vengeance will come at the cost of humanity's despair. But Jimmy's former lover Nita Hawes-a woman with demons of her own-has begun a quest to root the evil out of her city.
