To his surprise, he wakes up with smooth new skin over the entry wound in his chest, and a hungry black space in his mind. Cut off from his old world and free from fear, Hesker’s a new man. But he's on the wrong side of the law; a fugitive on the run through a storm-lashed city on the brink of collapse.
Hunted by the shadowy organization only known as Control, Hesker's search for answers leads him over the river and into the depths of the old city; a wild gangland enmeshed in a generations-old civil war. His footsteps dogged by death and chaos, Hesker’s shadow looms tall ahead of him.
Meanwhile, an ancient shadow is stirring - a force of fear and horror, hungry to swallow the world - and its freedom is close at hand. Hesker just might be unlucky enough to be the tipping point between salvation and damnation.Genre: FICTION / Thrillers / Legal
