A missing mobster, a bizarre spiritualist society, and three deaths are all linked by a chilling forensic detail in this wry, witty, and utterly unique take on the classic private eye novel Working as an enforcer in London's criminal underworld brought Dan Shaper to the edge of a breakdown. Now he's a private investigator, kept perilously afloat by a growing cocktail of drugs. He needs to straighten up and rebuild his life, but instead he gets the attention of his old gangland masters and a job offer from Mr. George Glass. The elderly eccentric claims to be a New Age Messiah, but now needs a savior of his own: he's been marked for murder. Adrift amidst liars and thugs, Shaper must push his capsizing mind to its limits, as he is stalked not only by a unique and terrifying killer, but by the ghosts of his own brutal past.
