I’m Devlin Cross, and if you’re looking for someone to sugarcoat the truth, you’ve got the wrong guy. I was born and bred in the neon jungle of Las Vegas, a city that’s as much a part of me as my own shadow. It’s a place where fortunes are made and lost before dawn, and I grew up right in the thick of it. My family history? Let’s just say it’s complicated and leave it at that.

I’ve always had a knack for seeing through the city’s glittering façade. I studied criminology and psychology, not just for the degrees but to understand the minds that thrive in the underbelly of this town. Law enforcement was too rigid for my taste. I preferred the freedom to operate on my own terms, so I became a private detective.

Crossroads Investigations is my realm. It’s where I piece together puzzles that others prefer to ignore. I’ve made a name for myself as the guy who digs up truths that are buried deep beneath layers of lies. My approach? Unconventional, maybe, but effective. I don’t just solve cases; I unravel them.

You could say I’m a bit of a loner. It comes with the territory. Relationships and this line of work don’t mix well. My solace comes from jazz – it’s got just the right amount of blues and improvisation to make sense to me. And then there’s the occasional poker game, where I find the stakes are more than just monetary.

My view on life? It’s like this city – complex, unpredictable, and never what it seems. I’ve seen enough to know that the line between right and wrong is often blurred. But in the end, it’s about seeking out the truth, no matter how ugly or hidden it might be.

So, who am I? I’m Devlin Cross, a seeker of hidden truths in a city built on illusions. I’m the guy you come to when the puzzle seems too tangled to unravel. In this city of lights and shadows, I’m the one constant – a detective who knows that every mystery comes with a price.
