Private eye John Justin Mallory has hit an all time low point in his life. His wife ran off with his ex-partner, the mafia has put a price on his head, he doesn't have any money and no prospective clients, either, until he sees a little green elf trying to hire him. At first, Mallory blames the elf-sighting on the bourbon he has been drinking, he listens to Murgenstrum's story. When some mob guys come to get him, the elf's ideas start to seem really good and Mallory is on the case.
It turns out that Murgenstrum was in charge of watching a unicorn, the unicorn that kept the fairy world and the human world linked. In the heart of each unicorn was a magic gem that had amazing power and the Grundy, a demon, wanted that power. Murgenstrum was positive that the Grundy had kidnapped the unicorn and was desperate to find it before the unicorn was killed. They didn't have much time and Mallory was all too aware that, if the unicorn died, the veil between his world and the fairy world would disappear and he would be stuck in a world populated with fairies, gnomes, leprechauns, goblins, demons and who knows what else.
