Deep in the heart of 19th century London, a young nobleman named Cain walks the shadowy cobblestone streets of the aristocratic society into which he was born. Forced to become an earl upon the untimely death of his father, Cain assumes the role of head of the Hargreaves, a noble family with a dark past. With Riff, his faithful manservant, and Mary Weather, his 10-year-old half sister, Cain investigates the mysterious crimes that seem to follow him wherever he goes.
Serial killers, insane household servants, mad scientists, and little girls with macabre hobbies haunt these spooky shojo manga takes on folk rhymes and classic children's literature, in volume one of a series. The hero of these Gothic tales is 17-year-old Lord Cain Hargreaves, who inherited the title of earl following the death of his abusive father. The amazingly handsome Lord Cain, an expert in poisons, stalks the streets of Victorian London, pursuing the homicidal maniacs that continually endanger both his loved ones and his more distant acquaintances.
