About this item
An evil force is mutilating people in modern-day London, and the horror resembles that of another era.
In the 1600s, a small town in Transylvania grew increasingly panic-stricken as more than five hundred young women lost their lives to a mysterious fiend. Some believed that a demon lurked in the woods, craving the blood of girls. But most locals never questioned that the fate of their daughters and sisters was related to something happening behind the walls of Cachtice Castle.
When corpses begin to appear in the twenty-first century, apparently bled with antique torture devices, forensic researcher Dr. Emanuel Mason reluctantly takes the case, knowing it could lead him to an old nemesis and reopen barely healed wounds. He’ll soon find that to prevent more carnage and uncover a killer practicing an ancient rite, he’ll need to look to the past and analyze one of the most sadistic minds in history.
